Georgia Woman Scratches, Wins $1,000,000


An Acworth, Georgia, woman is breaking out the confetti, the cupcakes and the cash.

And so would you.

Julia Kohler, 55, won a whopping $1 million prize playing the Georgia Lottery instant game Millionaire Celebration.

The lucky lottery winner, who enjoys traveling worldwide, anticipates planning future trips.

I at least want to go on one trip a year, said Kohler, who volunteers in her community. I’ll eventually get a new car.

Kellogg Creek Market, 3569 Kellogg Creek Road in Acworth, sold the winning ticket. Kohler was at home when she scratched it.

It didn’t look like anything I’d ever seen, she said. I pulled out three pairs of glasses from my purse, and I kept looking at it.

All of the zeros she saw were quite a surprise, Kohler admits.

It still does not seem real, she exclaimed. I’m very excited about receiving a few more dollars every year.

Very cool, Julia. Keep on scratchin’.
