A Winning Week in Spartanburg
10/3/2014 2:33:35 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (October 3, 2014) – It’s been a winning week for lottery players in Spartanburg County.

A combined $375,000 has been won by three players off tickets purchased in the seemingly lucky towns of Duncan, Campobello and Spartanburg.

Not surprising, all three gentlemen are in good spirits today.

When asked how her husband was doing, the wife of yesterday’s $75,000 winner responded, “He’s broke.” Then she laughed telling how her husband went through the McDonalds drive-thru after depositing his check.

“Obviously, we are going to be very careful spending this money,” she said.

Her husband won on a $3 Red Hot Crossword ticket bought from the Briar Patch on Asheville Hwy. in Campobello. He scratched the card at home and told his wife he was going outside to pick up some trash thrown out at their driveway, but rode back to the store to have the ticket scanned.

When he returned, he showed his wife the ticket, and her reaction was identical to that of another Spartanburg county winner’s wife.

“My wife was more excited than I was,” the $100,000 winner on a $5 Funky 5’s ticket from the Li’l Cricket 3802 on E. Main St. in Duncan said.

He collected his prize on Tuesday.

The largest win of the bunch, for $200,000 on a $10 Triple Green 777 ticket, was claimed yesterday. Corner Stop 106 on S. Church St. in Spartanburg sold the ticket to a Spartanburg man with one comment to share.

“I’m really happy,” he said.
