One of two Mega Millions winners came forward Wednesday to claim her share of the $636 million jackpot, the second-biggest in US lottery history.
Ira Curry popped into the Georgia state's lottery headquarters holding her ticket with the lucky numbers eight, 14, 17, 20, 39 and Mega Ball seven.
"It's unreal. It's like I'm still dreaming," Curry, who lives in an Atlanta suburb, said in a statement issued by the Georgia Lottery.
The jackpot was $20 million shy of the record $656 million that was shared by three Mega Millions ticket holders in March 2012.
