COLUMBIA, SC (February 3, 2016) – A Newberry woman thought a lottery ticket might cheer her up.

And she was right.

“I’d had a rough day,” she explained.

But that changed when she scratched off a $250,000 win on a Maximum Money ticket.

“Awesome,” she said unable to stop smiling.

Three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Maximum Money game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Bedi LLC in Saluda received a commission of $2,500.
