Kathy Scruggs, 44, of Lithonia, claimed her prize Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters. She said she asked the clerk at Shell Food Mart in Decatur for a Mega Millions ticket, but she was instead given a Powerball ticket for the Sept. 14 drawing, WGCL-TV, Atlanta, reported Tuesday.
"I just took it anyway. So I bought Powerball and Mega Millions," Scruggs said.
Scruggs won the jackpot with numbers 16-41-42-50-59 and Powerball 5.
