A Dalton mother of two has won an $80,000 top prize playing the instant game Orange Doubler Cashword.
Ana Mares, 24, claimed her prize at the Georgia Lottery’s District Office in Dalton.
ABC Convenience Store, 1135 Resaca Lafayette Road N.W. in Resaca, sold the lucky ticket.
“We just went into the store after visiting my in-laws,” Ms. Mares recalled of she and her husband, Arturo. “My husband got one for each of us.”
She scratched her ticket while at home.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Ms. Mares said. “I went over it several times. I couldn’t believe it.”
The Mares have no immediate plans for the winnings.
