ATLANTA – A lucky woman from Lakeland has won a monumental prize from the Georgia Lottery.

Tammy Radabaugh, 52, matched all six numbers from the April 7 Jumbo Bucks Lotto drawing, winning the $3.9 million jackpot prize.

Winning numbers from the April 7 drawing were: 14-15-31-36-38-44.

Bulldogs #2, 14 W. Main St. in Lakeland, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.

“I was taking my granddaughter to karate practice and decided to buy a ticket,” Radabaugh said.

She checked the results of the drawing on the Georgia Lottery’s website.

“I had heart palpitations for a moment,” the lucky winner said. “I couldn’t fathom that amount.”

Radabaugh and her husband, William, have three adult children and eight grandchildren.

Feeling great over her windfall, Radabaugh anticipates building a new home for her family.

“And, I’ll buy more toys for my granddaughter,” she added.

Jumbo Bucks Lotto is a Georgia Lottery jackpot game available only in Georgia. Drawings are held every Monday and Thursday.

Tickets are $1 per play.

Thursday’s jackpot is $1.1 million.

 Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $17 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.7 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.4 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.

    Well let’s hope she doesn’t end up like that guy in Fitzgerald. I know if I won I would fight to keep it private not only for mine and my family’s safety but to keep all of the “relatives” and “old friends” from calling on me for a handout.
