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.

Store Manager Raj Patel says he hopes the win will encourage more lottery sales.  He said, "People like to win. People like to win. Easy money."

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.
