Kathy Scruggs from Savannah Georgia, asked for a Mega Millions ticket, and the clerk handed her one for Powerball. Instead of getting upset and going off on the clerk, she decided to keep it anyway.
Turns out it was the winning $25 million ticket, and now the unemployed 44-year-old can stop her job search.
“I’ve been looking and looking and looking,” Scruggs says. Instead, “I’m going to build my mom and grandmother a home,” she says. “That’s my first focus.” Afterward, she hopes to aid the homeless and help struggling people cover dental bills. “I’m happy and grateful,” she tells the News. “I really am.”
OH! For those who want to know, she elected the cash option and will receive $15,124,017 before taxes.
