Woman thanks itching hand for lottery win

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A Savannah woman has won $10,000 from a Georgia Lottery Junior Jumbo Bucks instant game. Forty-three-year-old Deborah Cooper purchased her lottery ticket from the BP store on Waters Avenue.

"My right hand started itching. Sometimes I ignore it, but this time I didn't," Cooper told the Georgia Lottery. "I'm tickled to death. I''m going on vacation."

Profits from the Georgia Lottery fund Georgia's HOPE scholarship program that help more than 1.25 million students attend college and more than 1 million 4-year-olds attend prekindergarten.
