COLUMBIA, SC (August 5, 2014) – “Something told me to get a ticket,” said a Lancaster man, and it’s a good thing he did.
His intuition paid off $200,000.
The Palmetto Cash 5 quick pick from In & Out Mini Mart on W. McGregor St. in Pageland matched all five numbers – 8, 10, 17, 19 and 37 – drawn.
But the winner, who did not want to release his name, says it wasn’t luck on his side but a higher authority.
“I’ve been blessed,” he said.
Spending the extra $1 for Power-Up doubled his $100,000 prize from the drawing on Tuesday, July 29 to $200,000.
Odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.
For selling the claimed ticket, In & Out Mini Mart in Pageland received a commission of $2,000.
To date, lottery play has resulted in more than $3.4 billion transferred to support education.
