Updated:

December 13, 2007

Albany - - The wife of an Albany soldier stationed overseas has a little something extra to help her through the holidays.

Actually, a lot extra . . . $50,000!

Twenty-three old Tammy O'neal played a Jumbo Bucks Classic scratch-off lottery ticket here at the Stop & Buy on Cordele Road and won the top prize.

Her husband Jimmie is overseas. O'neal says she's excited to get the holiday cash.

She'll spend Christmas with family in Florida since her husband isn't home. They have a three year old daughter.
