According to lottery officials, Kelly Bronaugh, 39, stopped to purchase a Coke and a lottery ticket at the Sams Mart #0513 in Snellville while on her lunch break.
Describing the experience as "pure shock," Bronaugh had to ask a co-worker if the win was real.
“I started screaming then everyone else started screaming,” she said.
Bronaugh said she intends to pay off bills with her winnings.
