Phenix City woman strikes $125K playing Fantasy 5

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - A retired Alabama woman has struck a prize playing the Georgia Lottery.

Allie King of Phenix City, AL won a $125,000 jackpot prize playing the May 24 Fantasy 5 drawing.

King, 65, and her husband, Ronny, were in complete disbelief as they watched the drawing results on TV. She played a combination of her own numbers and is still astonished at her winnings.

"It is still unbelievable," King said. "Who would have thought?"

Retired after working 15 years, King plans to use her prize to refurnish her home and invest the remainder.

"I think I need some new carpet," King exclaimed.

Quick Mini Mart, 1344 Broadway in Columbus, sold the winning ticket.

The winning numbers from the May 24 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 4-8-16-30-33.

She claimed her prize May 25 at Georgia Lottery District Office in Columbus.
