Smyrna winner claims prize!

Wendy Wilson’s Chinese dinner ended with the customary fortune cookie; and the message inside – Remember this date, three months from now something good will happen.

That was May 27. On August 28, three months and one day after that foretelling, Wendy won the $120,000 jackpot from the Tennessee Lottery’s Pick 5 game.

“This is unbelievable,” said Wendy who lives in Smyrna and purchased her winning ticket at Publix on Lee Victory Pkwy. “When I got that fortune I wrote the date on the back and stuck it in my wallet and thought, ‘Let’s see what happens.’ I never dreamed it would be this!”

Wendy plans to put the winnings to good use. “We’re going to pay a few bills and have some for savings.” Congratulations to the Wilson family!
