A 33-year-old Leesburg mom was one of two people to match all five numbers playing Fantasy 5 and won a $50,000 jackpot.

Georgia Lottery officials say that Angela Gattie bought the winning ticket at Woodall's on North Jefferson Street.

"I logged onto the website the day after the drawing," Gattie explained. "When I saw the numbers matched, I cried and called my husband. He was excited."

A legal secretary, Gattie and her husband, Michael, intend to invest and pay off bills with the windfall.
