A 29-year-old Columbus woman won a $45,000 lottery prize after buying an instant win ticket at Shell Mart, 5900 Veterans Parkway.
Nikisha Wright won the money while playing the GL Black & White game, according to a Georgia Lottery news release.
“I went in to buy a different ticket, and I changed my mind,” Wright says in the news release. “It is a new ticket, and I figured I’d try it out.”
Wright is a call center employee, the news release notes. She and her husband, Derenic, have one son.
“I don’t know what to think," Wright says in the news release. "I plan to help out my family members."
