Carlene Brown raked in a cool $150,000 through the instant game that was purchased at the Sunny Food Mart on South Main Street.

"I took it home and looked at it," Brown told lottery officials. "Then I put it up, took it out and looked at it some more."

Brown told the Georgia Lottery that she plans to pay her bills, give money to family members and make a donation to a worthy cause.

Tandi Reddick, a spokesperson for the Georgia Lottery, said that Brown joins a small club by winning the instant game's top prize.

"Ms. Brown is one of only three top prize winners in the state for this game," Reddick said. "She sounded really excited and was thrilled."

Georgia Gold was introduced in May.
