COLUMBIA, SC (June 29, 2015) – A Myrtle Beach tourist left the Grand Strand with a $200,000 lottery win.

She bought the souvenir, a 50X scratch-off, for $10 at the Kangaroo Express #3220 on Hwy. 17 in Little River.

And while a side trip to Columbia wasn’t planned, the winner and her husband made their way to the Capital City to cash in the ticket before heading home out of state.

“I’ll be back to SC,” the winner promised. “We had a wonderful vacation.”

One top prize of $200,000 remains in the 50X game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, the retailer received a commission of $2,000.
