Onzie Minor

A house-sitting grandmother from Atlanta has found a $1 million win on the south side of town. Onzie Minor, 59, won her top prize playing the Georgia Lottery instant game Big Payout.
 
The big payout came from Quik Thrift #0939, 3939 Cascade Palmetto Highway in Fairburn, where she purchased her ticket. Minor said she was on the way to her daughter’s home to house-sit for the weekend when she decided to stop.
 
"I was in the car, and I couldn’t believe it," the grandmother of seven said.
 
Feeling great about her lottery win, Minor said she intends to travel.
 
"I just feel great," she shared. "I've got big plans."
