COLUMBIA, SC (September 6, 2016) – “Scorpion,” “Scooter” & “Gust” along with eight other words won a Bonneau woman $75,000 from the South Carolina Education Lottery.

Money Puzzle Gold, a crossword style game where players uncover letters to complete words, made her a winner last week.

“It was quite a surprise,” she said.

Her screams of joy caused the cat to jump in the air and her boyfriend spilled his soup.

The winner says she’ll take her time deciding how to spend the prize money. She’s thinking of remodeling the house, but her boyfriend has other ideas.

“Boat,” he whispered in her ear.

One top prize of $75,000 remains in the $3 Money Puzzle Gold game, at odds of 1 in 528,000.

Now that the prize is paid, Jaibhavani Wildwood in Moncks Corner receives a $750 commission.
