Lottery officials say a woman from suburban Atlanta has claimed the $72 million Mega Millions jackpot.
Officials said that 33-year-old Marcia Adams from College Park turned in her winning ticket at the lottery's Atlanta headquarters Thursday. Adams selected the cash option, which gave her $52 million.
Adams said she discovered she had won on her way to work Thursday when her boyfriend checked the results of Tuesday's drawing on his cellphone. Adams said she "almost lost my mind" when she heard the news.
She said she and her boyfriend plan to get married and buy a house with the money. The accountant said she plans to keep working.
The winning numbers in the multi-state lottery were 10-22-24-36-49 and the Mega Ball was 33.
