An Albany housekeeper is celebrating a “tidy” Georgia Lottery win. Belinda Gilliard, 43, matched all five winning numbers in the Nov. 10 Fantasy 5 drawing and won $280,127.

Gilliard purchased her jackpot ticket at June Bug’s Grocery, 1905 S. Madison St., Albany.

“I went by the store to pick up a printout of the winning numbers and realized I won,” Gilliard explained.

Winning numbers for the Nov. 10 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 7-18-26-31-33. Gilliard won using numbers from a previous Quik Pik combination.

“I had a Quik Pik and kept playing the same numbers over for awhile,” she said.

Gilliard says she’s still deciding how to use her winnings.

Georgia Lottery retailers selling winning Fantasy 5 jackpot tickets receive a retailer incentive bonus of $2,000. The retailer incentive bonus increases by $2,000 each time Fantasy 5 rolls. If more than one winning jackpot ticket is sold, the retailers selling the jackpot winning tickets will share the bonus. June Bug’s Grocery will receive a $6,000 retailer incentive bonus.
