Fitzgerald - Terrell Moore of Fitzgerald is a Chemical Specialist for the army and is stationed in Korea. Last night, he won a mega jackpot in the mega-millions lottery.

The jackpot's no longer 150 million, but Bobbie Edwards says she hopes buying a lottery ticket from The Peach Express will increase her luck. This is where the latest mega millions winner bought his ticket.

Edwards says, "If I won a million dollars, it would be just the same as him winning 150 million dollars. It's all what you do with it."

Gloria Stone says Moore called her and told her that she sold him the winning ticket.

Stone says, "A little after six this guy called. He said, 'ya'll sold the winning ticket.' I said, 'I don't know.' He said, 'I'm telling you you did.' 'I don't know.' 'I'm telling you you did.' I said, 'Well, if I sold it to you, I hope you give me some of it.'"

And just after that call, Terrell Moore, also known as "Frog", hopped in his car, and headed to Atlanta to claim his winnings.

Terry Johnson also works at the Peach Express. She happy there's a hometown winner. "I wanted to win it," says Johnson. "I'm glad for him. He probably needed it more than we did."

But for now, Terry says she'll keep selling those tickets, in hopes that one day she'll get a piece of the pie. We couldn't get in touch Terrell Moore today, but his brother says everyone is very excited about the winnings.
