Kathy Scruggs, 44, tells the Savannah Morning News, "I asked for a Mega Millions ticket, and the lady gave me a Powerball ticket." I just took it anyway. So I bought Powerball and Mega Millions."
That twist of fate paid off -- big time. Scruggs matched all of the winning numbers in the Powerball drawing, netting a $25 million jackpot.
Scruggs, who is unemployed and has been "looking and looking" for work, now plans to travel, and launch some charitable efforts with her winnings. But, as the saying goes, charity begins at home.
"I’m going to build my mom and grandmother a home. That's my first focus," Scruggs says.
