A New Car for Kingstree Lottery Winner

COLUMBIA, SC (March 23, 2016) – A new car could be sitting in a Kingstree lottery winner’s driveway.

The lucky lady cashed in a ticket worth $100,000 yesterday with plans to visit a car lot.

It was her husband’s idea to treat his wife to a new car with the winnings off a Lucky 7 scratch-off they purchased together at the Murphy Express #8681 on W. Loop Rd. in Lake City.

“But I said, ‘That’s the one,’” said the husband of their ticket choice.

And while he’s taking credit for picking out the winning ticket, his wife is picking out the car.

Three top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Lucky 7 game, at odds of 1 in 432,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Murphy Express #8681 in Lake City received a commission of $1,000.
