COLUMBIA, SC (April 30, 2015) Many times a Clover man has imagined what it would be like to win the Lottery.

I thought Id have a heart attack, he said.

But when his dream became reality, he didnt need an ambulance after all.

He called his ex-wife instead, to tell her he won $200,000.

Hes a big joker, so I didnt believe him, she said.

The two are now great friends, so he wanted to show his ex-wife the winning $10 Cash Vault scratch-off and ask her advice on how to spend it.

Together they mapped out a plan. Hes getting a new car and a laptop. Then hes sending his grandson on a school trip and his granddaughter on a trip with friends. The rest hell save for emergencies.

I finally did it, he said, patting his chest, and his ticker was beating fine.

Two top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Cash Vault game. Odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, 7-Eleven Store 35574H on the Charlotte Hwy. in Clover received a commission of $2,000.
