COLUMBIA, SC (May 14, 2015) – An Eastover man turned a $100 lottery win into $200,000.

And while it wasn’t magic, the winner concedes winning the lottery twice in one day is pretty lucky.

He won $100 in the morning and around lunchtime spent $10 of his winnings on a $200,000 Super Cash ticket to claim that game’s top prize.

How will he celebrate?

“I’ll probably buy a ticket on the way home,” he said.

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

For selling the claimed ticket, Corner Pantry #113 in Columbia received a commission of $2,000.
