COLUMBIA, SC (September 24, 2009) – “I had to take a double look at the ticket,” said the Myrtle Beach player who won $100,000 playing Bags of Cash and could not believe what he was seeing!
The winner, who asked that his name not be publicized, said luck is definitely on his side.
“When you’re hot, you’re hot,” the gentleman joked at the Columbia Claims Center. The winner and his wife plan to use some of the $100,000 to take a well deserved vacation.
The couple bought the Bags of Cash instant ticket at Kangaroo Express #3418 in Surfside Beach. A retailer who sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more receives a 1 percent selling bonus.
