Lindale great-grandmother of 6 wins $377K

Media release: A Floyd County great-grandmother has rounded up a generous Georgia Lottery prize. Judy Chambers, 62, won a $377,777 top prize playing the instant game Red, White & Blue 7's.


With two children, two grandchildren and six grandchildren, Chambers anticipates more playful days with her family.


"I've been wanting a place on the lake for the grandkids," she said.


Chambers, who lives in Lindale, purchased her ticket at Plaza Food Mart, 1598 Rome Highway in Cedartown.


Chambers said she had a lucky feeling about stopping at that store.


"Oh yes, I was excited," she said. "I went to the car, scratched it, and I took it back inside. The clerk was happy, too."
