QUITMAN, Ga. (WCTV) – The big bucks are rolling in for one lucky Quitman resident.

Williams Place in downtown Quitman sold a Fantasy 5 lottery ticket that won $125,000 in the March 1 drawing. This isn't the store's first time hitting big,; the owners said a $150,000 ticket was sold just over one year ago.

Store owners said it's exciting to have a small town win big.

"It means a lot, it makes you feel good, especially when you know it was probably someone who deserved it," said store owner Billy Giddens.

The winner has claimed their prize but is choosing to remain anonymous.
