COLUMBIA, SC (April 16, 2015) – A Myrtle Beach woman knew her boyfriend had excellent taste in women, but lottery tickets?

Unable to decide which ticket to buy with her $5 in change, she let her boyfriend choose. The Joker Mania scratch-off that caught his eye won the young couple $100,000.

“I was dancing a jig,” the winner said.

Their kids were equally as excited, screaming “We’re rich! We’re rich!”

The youngsters want a PlayStation.

Mom has a bigger prize in mind, a new house.

One top prize of $100,000 remains in the Joker Mania game. Odds of winning $100,000 are 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Circle K Stores #8114 in Myrtle Beach received a commission of $1,000.
