COLUMBIA, SC (April 18, 2016) – Call it beginner’s luck. A Columbia couple that started playing the Lottery about a month ago cashed in a $250,000 winning ticket this morning.

“We started playing for fun,” admitted the husband.

Over the weekend the young couple bought a Money Money Money scratch-off at the Kangaroo Express #3486 on Forest Drive in Columbia that surprised them both with a $250,000 win.

“We’ve got a baby on the way,” said the husband of the perfect timing.

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

For selling the claimed ticket, Kangaroo Express #3486 in Columbia received a commission of $2,500.
