A half-million dollar Georgia Lottery prize has arrived for a Covington woman just in time for the holidays.
Wanda Pitts, 49, played the instant game Right On The Money and won a $500,000 top prize.
My niece and I were on our way home from shopping, and my niece said, “I feel very lucky. Let’s buy a lottery ticket,’ Pitts explained.
I stopped and purchased a ticket. When I saw the matching No. 14, I lost my mind.
Pitts was overwhelmed with emotion when the store’s clerk confirmed the good news.
I was crying. I was about to hyperventilate, she said. I was screaming and squealing, jumping up and down. I was excited.
The lucky winner intends to financially help those in her family.
I’m going to buy a new car and pay off my mortgage, Pitts shared.
