COLUMBIA, SC (September 22, 2015) – For two weeks, a Fort Mill woman has been carrying around a big secret.

Inside her purse she's had a winning lottery ticket worth $100,000.

"I kept a tight grip on it," she said.

And she's convinced her secret is safe. She's been going to work and about her business as usual. Even one of her children that still lives at home hasn't noticed anything different.

The only clue she's left behind are her footprints at a car lot.

"I have been looking at new cars," she admitted.

One top prize of $100,000 remains in the $5 Double Sided Dollar$ game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Miller Produce in Fort Mill received a commission of $1,000.
