Georgetown Lottery Winner Speaks with a Realtor
7/11/2017 11:46:06 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (July 11, 2017) – A Georgetown woman won the Lottery and called a realtor.

“I wanted to tell everybody I won,” she said. “But I didn’t.”

Instead she told her daughter and a realtor, in that order, that she won $250,000 on a scratch-off ticket from the South Carolina Education Lottery.

She told her daughter that money for college would be waiting on her. And she told the realtor to start looking for her new, dream home.

The winner says she stopped at the Exxon Food Mart on US 17 N. in McClellanville on her way home from work and bought the winning Ca$h Ba$h ticket. She scratched the ticket before going to bed that night.

“I haven’t been able to sleep,” she said. “This is so exciting.”

Four top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Ca$h Ba$h game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Exxon Food Mart in McClellanville received a commission of $2,500.
