41-year-old Shona West won the cool million in the August 26th Mega Millions drawing.

West matched the first five winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number, which is good for the game's second prize.

But by selecting the 'Megaplier' option for one dollar, she increased her prize from $250,000 to one million.

She bought the lucky Quik Pik ticket at the One Stop Food Store on West Oakridge Drive. West claimed her prize Wednesday.

And starting Friday, you'll be able to go to our website, and sign up to get Georgia Lottery results as a text message on your mobile device.
