COLUMBIA, SC (November 18, 2014) – An Irmo woman’s boyfriend found her stretched out on the kitchen floor with a $200,000 winning lottery ticket.

“I had to lie down,” she confessed after scratching the winning Triple Green 777 ticket.

“You are in denial,” she said of winning. “You look and you look at the ticket and think this can’t be true.”

Maybe it was her surroundings, but when her boyfriend asked what she was going to do next, she said, “I’m going to buy a chuck roast and make beef stew.”

As of this release, three top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Triple Green 777 game. The odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Friarsgate Supermart in Irmo received a $2,000 commission.
