Albany --  One Albany woman is two and a half million dollars richer after striking it big in a Georgia Lottery scratch-off game.   

Sales are way up at the Mini-Mart on Stuart Avenue today because that's where a winner scratched it big in the lottery last night.  She doesn't want us to identify her, but she bought a roll of ten dollar scratch-offs in the $300 Million Gold Rush game.   

And one of them uncovered a two and half million dollar jackpot.  

"She comes in about once a week, buys her scratch offs, sits back there and scratches,"   said her friend, Carylyn Hoots.     

The woman turned in her winning ticket at the Lottery's Atlanta office this afternoon.    

Customers are calling the Mini Mart the luckiest store in Albany. They sold a $250,000 Merry Money winner in 2003. Then in 2004, they sold a Fantasy Five game that paid $281,000.
