Karen Privette won the prize by playing the Georgia Lottery instant game 50X The Money.

"It was such a shock," Privette, 53, said, adding that she "felt joy and excitement" when she scratched the ticket at the back of the store.

Big Shanty Superette sold the lucky ticket.

Privette, who lives in Adairsville, immediately called her mother and husband to share the good news.

When asked how she planned to spend the prize, Privette said, "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 works as a senior warehouse clerk. She and her husband have two grown daughters.
