Woman wins $1 million from scratch-off ticket

An Atlanta resident recently won $1 million playing the $100 Million Cash Extreme instant game, according to the Georgia Lottery.

Stephanie Taylor purchased the $10 ticket when she stopped by an Exxon.

The 34-year-old scratched the ticket off in the car and then “almost passed out,” a press release said. Taylor plans to use some of her winnings to take her family on a relaxing vacation.

Taylor claimed her prize Tuesday at Georgia Lottery headquarters.

The odds of winning $1 million in this instant game are 1 in 1,488,000, according to the website.
