COLUMBIA, SC (January 6, 2014) – Sitting next to her husband, a Darlington woman scratched a lottery ticket and won $200,000.

When it happened, she didn’t scream or say a word.

Clueless, her husband found out hours later when she confessed that their luck had changed.

“But the money is not going to change us,” she told him.

As of this release, one top prize of $200,000 remains in the $10 Lucky Diamonds game. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Country Corner in Lancaster received a commission of $2,000.
