COLUMBIA, SC (August 18, 2015) – Newlyweds from Florence are $250,000 lottery winners.

“It’s a great start to marriage,” the wife said.

Her husband came home from work and surprised her with a winning ticket he had purchased at the Sav Way on Cherokee Rd. in Florence. Her family was in town visiting and they spent a fun evening brainstorming all the ways you could spend a quarter of a million dollars.

The couple settled on paying off all their student loans.

“All our problems are solved,” the husband said.

Three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the Big Cash game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Sav Way in Florence received a commission of $2,500.
