A savannah woman who is expecting her first child later this year, won a $2.5 million top prize playing Millionaire Jumbo Bucks, a Georgia Lottery instant game. 

Misty Bowman, 36, of Savannah got her ticket at Discount Corner on Abercorn St. 

Bowman, who is in the U.S. Army, is no stranger to winning the lottery. She won $25,000 playing the same game this past January and $5,000 in February playing the instant game $10 Million Cash Spectacular. 

"I had two tickets left on the $20 jumbo. She bought one and did not win anything. She got the last one on that roll. She just started screaming right here. I knew it was big. I did not think it was that big. She let me look at it... $2.5 million," manager Sumit Sapkota said. 

The lucky lottery winner says she intends on saving a portion of her winnings to go toward her child's college fund, and she also plans to financially assist her immediate family members.
