COLUMBIA, SC (June 16, 2010) Ė An Orangeburg woman is still smiling after winning $200,000 playing In the Money. The winning moment occurred inside Sai Mart in Orangeburg. She scratched the ticket, saw she won and high fived the owner, Bharat "Bert" Patel.

"Did I really win?" she asked Patel. "This canít be happening."

The player asked that her name not be publicized. She is quick to admit her first purchase will be a new car. "If you saw my car, you would know why I need one," the winner said. "A vacation sounds nice too."

Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent commission, capped at $50,000. Sai Mart received a $2,000 retailer commission.
