ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A south Georgia woman became the state's newest millionaire on Good Friday.    

She won one million dollars on a $20 World Class Millions scratch off ticket just before 3:00PM.    

She bought it at the B-P Gas Station on North Slappey Blvd. 

The manager said the woman is a regular customer, and get this: Not only did she win one million dollars Friday, but she previously won ten thousand dollars at the same store.    

Store Manager Nainesh Patel said everyone in the store was excited for her. "Every body was so happy, and just looking! She was just scared, she didn't know what she was doing, she was screaming 'I won, I got it, I got it!'" 

The million dollar winner left the store shortly after she scratched the winning ticket with a police escort.

Store owners said they have a lot of winners there and hopes this latest winner drums up more business.
