COLUMBIA, SC (May 5, 2015) – In his own words, a Beaufort lottery winner is finally “going to live a little.”

That starts with a vacation and possibly a new car, if his wife agrees.

“I haven’t told her yet,” he confessed.

She’ll be surprised to hear about the $200,000 her husband won on a Lucky Red 7’s scratch-off at the Trask Shell Food Mart on Trask Pwky. in Beaufort.

“I almost fainted,” the winner said.

Three top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Lucky Red 7’s game. Odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Trask Shell Food Mart in Beaufort received a commission of $2,000.
