Two South Georgia women won big in the Georgia Lottery. 

Mary Cromer, 61, of Tifton bought a Giant Jumbo Bucks ticket on her lunch break.

She won 150 thousand dollars.

Cromer scratched the lucky ticket at work.

"I was hollering to myself because I was in my office," she said.

"It just really numbed me for a minute. I just couldn't believe it."

 Sunmart, located at 902 Central Ave. S. in Tifton, sold the top prize ticket.

Cromer claimed her prize Friday.

A Lee County school bus driver  won a $10,000 Georgia Lottery prize.

Shelly McBurnett, 39, won the prize in the Sept. 5 Decades of Dollars drawing.

 "I stopped and got gas, and checked my tickets," she said. "I jumped for joy, and I screamed."

 McBurnett, a resident of Leesburg, claimed her prize Friday at the Georgia Lottery's Tifton office.

 She plans to use some of her winnings to pay bills.

 "And if my husband is nice enough, I might get him a motorcycle," she added with a laugh.
