COLUMBIA, SC (December 5, 2011) – Winning the Lottery is a real win for Nina Kaur’s business.

Kaur owns Diamond Cab in Myrtle Beach, where the drivers and employees couldn’t be happier for their boss lady.

The $200,000 Winner Green scratch-off ticket will carry the cab company through the slow winter months.

“I didn’t believe it,” she said when collecting her prize in November.

She thanked her deceased father, who she said gave her money in a dream. She took his gesture as a sign she should play the Lottery. Her hunch was right.

“I couldn’t sleep,” she said after winning the cash.

“I slept great,” responded her husband.

Diamond Cab employees are sleeping a little easier too.

As of this release, four top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Winner Green game.

The odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 428,571.43.

Al’s Food Mart in Myrtle Beach received a commission of $2,000 for selling the claimed ticket.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than 932,000 college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $2.6 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
