Big Shanty Superette on S. Main St. N.W. in Kennesaw sold the lucky ticket.

"I scratched it at the back of the store," she said. "There were tears, and I felt joy and excitement."

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Privette with an oversized check Friday at the store where she purchased her ticket.

"I want to pay bills, pay off my daughters' cars, pay off mine, buy my husband a car and pay off my mom's credit card," Privette said.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.8 billion to the state of Georgia for education.
