A Rossville, Ga., woman is $400,000 richer after winning big in the Georgia Lottery.
Nelda Alexander won the money playing the instant game Kings & Queens. The 57-year-old fabrics worker bought and scratched her ticket at Mr. Quick Market, at 3141 Lakeview Drive in Rossville, according to a statement from the Georgia Lottery.
“I was in tears when I left there,” she said in the statement.
An employee at Southern Industrial Fabrics in Rossville, Alexander said she’ll invest her winnings for retirement.
“When I get older, I won’t have to work so hard,” she said. “It’ll be nice not to worry after I retire.”
The area has had two big lottery winners in the last week. A Hixson, Tenn., woman claimed a $2 million Tennessee Lottery win on Tuesday.
