Little River Man Wins $250K on “Pink” Scratch-off

COLUMBIA, SC (April 8, 2016) – This is no April fool’s joke, a Little River man really won $250,000 on April 1. But convincing his wife is another story.

“I’m not going to believe it until I see the check,” she said.

Not even a good, long hard look at her husband’s Lady Luck ticket made her a believer. She says it honestly didn’t look like something he’d buy. The ticket was pink.

“I didn’t know if I should buy it,” he admitted. “A pink ticket for a guy, I don’t know.”

But he bought it anyway, and this week cashed in that pink ticket for the proof his wife had been waiting for.

“We’re going to Disney,” he said admiring his check.

“Bermuda,” said the wife.

As of this release, two top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Lady Luck game. The odds of winning $250,000 are 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Speedway #4585 in Little River received a commission of $2,500.
