Augusta nurse wins $2 million lottery

An Augusta nurse has new dreams.


“I work a lot of hours,” Patricia Holloman said. “Or, I should say, I worked a lot of hours.”

Holloman, 50, won $2 million Tuesday playing Millionaire Jingle Jumbo Bucks, an instant game with prizes up to $3 million. She bought her winning ticket at P J Food Store on Skinner Mill Road in Augusta and later scratched the ticket at home.
