COLUMBIA, SC (March 9, 2016) – Palmetto Cash 5 is a hot ticket at the Sharpe Shoppe #4 in Blythewood. A week and a half after selling three top prize tickets worth $200,000 each, the retailer on Wilson Blvd. has now sold its fourth, this one worth $300,000. That brings the total wins to $900,000.

Last night’s winning Palmetto Cash 5 ticket matched all five numbers drawn to win the $100,000 top prize. Because the ticket holder “Powered-Up” for an additional $1, the $100,000 top prize was multiplied to $300,000 when a three was drawn.
