ALBANY, GA (WALB) –An Albany housekeeper, can now sit back and pay someone to clean her house. She won the lottery!

43-year old Belinda Gilliard matched all five winning numbers in the Fantasy five drawing November 10th. She won a whopping $280,000. Gilliard bought that ticket here, at June Bug's Grocery on South Madison Street in Albany.

If you want to try the same lucky combination as Gilliard, here are her numbers: 7-18-26-31-33. Friday's fantasy 5 drawing is for more than $600,000.
