DECATUR, Ga. -- When Betty Robinson traveled to Georgia to visit her family, she probably never dreamed that she'd return home $25,000 richer.

Robinson, 74, played the Georgia Lottery instant game Some Like It Hot! during her visit. She won the top prize.

"It was my family who were with me that suggested that I play it," said the Cincinnati, Ohio resident.

Robinson bought her lucky ticket at Sun Smokehouse at North DeKalb Mall. She claimed her prize at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.

The lucky winner has five adult daughters and a combined 14 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She plans to spend part of her prize on a vacation to Orlando.
