COLUMBIA, SC (January 21, 2016) – Santa left a lottery ticket in a Murrells Inlet mom’s stocking.

The family didn’t scratch the $250,000 Payday ticket until after Christmas, but when they did were shocked to win $250,000.

“I must have been a good girl,” Mom explained.

One top prize of $250,000 remains in the $250,000 Payday game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Markette Store #21 in Murrells Inlet received a commission of $2,500.
