ATLANTA – Cartersville resident Nancy Ullger recently became another lucky Georgia Lottery winner. She played Jumbo Bucks Classic, an instant game, and won the $50,000 top prize.
After scratching her ticket, Ms. Ullger started jumping up and down and then woke up her son to make sure that she was looking at it correctly. “He said, ‘$50,000, Mom. It really says $50,000,’ ” Ms. Ullger recounted.
The 54-year-old plans to use her winnings to pay bills.
Ms. Ullger purchased her winning ticket at Short N Easy, located at 429 Grasssdale Rd. in Cartersville.
