COLUMBIA, SC (December 14, 2011) – On the campus of Clemson University, a cleaning lady scratched a lottery ticket and won $100,000.

She slipped the ticket in her back pocket and went about her day.

“I buttoned the pocket closed,” she added.

The winner from South Georgia plans to use her winnings to hire someone to take care of things around her house for a change.

As of this release, two top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Cold Hard Cash game.

The odds of winning $100,000 are 1 in 600,000.

Quick Trip #1107 in Anderson received a commission of $1,000 for selling the claimed ticket.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than one million 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.
