ATLANTA – A Forsyth County woman grabbed a quarter-of-a-million dollars — after playing Mega Millions, that is.
Geraldine Thornton, 66, of Cumming, matched the first five winning numbers in the April 2 drawing to win her $250,000 prize.
With her windfall, Thornton said she will make transformations at her home.
"I'm going to have a new bathroom put in," she said in a statement. "The rest we'll just bank, I guess."
A set of family birthdays and anniversaries is what helped Thornton clinch the prize.
Winning numbers from the April 2 Mega Millions drawing were: 7-10-14-40-47 and the Mega Ball was 34.
Retired from working in retail, Thornton "choked up" upon seeing the results on the Georgia Lottery's website. She went back to the store to double check.
The ticket was bought at Publix Super Market, 500 Atlanta Road in Cumming.
"I couldn't believe it," Thornton said. "I was shocked."
