COLUMBIA, SC (March 30, 2016) – A Myrtle Beach retiree was playing to win a jackpot but won $100,000 instead.

“I was stunned,” the winner said.

He went in the Speedway #4577 on Holmestown Rd. for a Powerball® ticket when a $5 scratch-off caught his eye. So he bought both tickets.

The Lucky 7 scratcher lived up to its name, winning him the top prize of $100,000.

“There was a lot of luck involved,” he said.

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

For selling the claimed ticket, Speedway #4577 in Myrtle Beach received a commission of $1,000.
