COLUMBIA, SC (October 29, 2013) – A Hopkins couple cut their Myrtle Beach vacation short when the wife scratched a lottery ticket to win $200,000.

“We high fived,” said the husband, who bought his wife the Extreme Green ticket for $10 when he stopped for gas at the Tiger Mart #16 in North Myrtle Beach.

“We might tell the kids at Christmas,” he said.

As of this release, three top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Extreme Green game. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Tiger Mart #16 in North Myrtle Beach received a commission of $2,000.

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 $3.2 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
