A Hixson woman did a triple take upon scratching off a winning $2 million instant game this week.

Frances Sharp claimed her winnings today at the Tennessee Lottery Headquarters in Nasvhille, according to spokeswoman Kym Gerlock.

This was the first jackpot winner for the "$2 Million Bonaza," a high-jackpot scrath-off ticket game recently unveiled by the lottery.

"At first I thought I had won $2,000, then I thought it was $200,000," said Sharp, 69.

Sharp purchased her ticket at a Hixson gas station near where she lives.
