COLUMBIA, SC (June 18, 2014) – A Longs woman’s phone hasn’t stopped ringing since her kids found out she won $200,000 in the Lottery.

“They’ve been calling to check on me and the ticket,” she said.

Her kids met her in the driveway when she pulled up with the ticket bought from the neighborhood Griffins Supermarket on Hwy. 90.

The winner says she watched a customer in line ahead of her buy a ticket. So when it was her turn, she decided to take a chance and play too. She scratched the $10 Superstar Cash ticket in her car waiting at a stop sign.

“I can’t believe this,” she said.

The Longs winner claimed the last top prize of $200,000 in the Superstar Cash game. Odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Griffins Supermarket in Longs received a commission of $2,000.
