Fort Benning, Georgia, Worker Pockets $250,000 Playing a Scratch Game


A Fort Benning, Georgia, contract worker has posted a quarter-million-dollar Georgia Lottery win.

Sallie Epps, 56, won $250,000 playing the instant game $150,000,000 Slots of Luck.

Epps purchased and scratched her top prize ticket at R & S Grocery, 541 Second Ave., Columbus. I kind of screamed a little bit, she said.

Heck, I would too.

Epps, a Phenix City, Ala., resident, claimed her prize Friday afternoon at the Georgia Lottery’s Columbus district office.

It feels great, she said. I’m going to pay off all my bills and probably do a little traveling.

You go, girl.
