COLUMBIA, SC (March 4, 2011) – Winning $100,000 on a Ric Flair™ Lucky WOOOOO!™ instant ticket tested a Greenwood woman’s patience.

“I called my daughter and told her she was going to take off work, because I needed a ride,” the winner said. “Nothing was going to stop me from getting to Columbia to get my money.”

When the winner arrived, lottery officials were curious why she picked the wrestling themed ticket. Was she a Ric Flair™ fan?

“No,” she said. “But I have seen him on T.V.”

The winner did not want to be named but has four children to share the winnings with.

“I have been waiting a long time for something like this to happen,” she said.

As of this release, two top prizes of $100,000 remain in the Ric Flair™ Lucky WOOOOO!™ game. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 300,000.

Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent retailer commission, capped at $50,000. Li’l Cricket #817 in Greenwood received $1,000.
