COLUMBIA, SC (July 17, 2017) – A Myrtle Beach tourist left the Grand Strand $125,000 richer after purchasing a winning scratch-off ticket.

The winner says she bought the ticket on the last day of her vacation from the Sunhouse #9 on George Bishop Pkwy. in Myrtle Beach. The next day she packed the Stellar Winnings ticket and went home to Georgia.

Two weeks later she returned to South Carolina to cash in the ticket.

“I was waiting for the perfect day,” she said. “I’ve got to come to South Carolina more.”

Now that the prize is paid, Sunhouse #9 in Myrtle Beach receives a $1,250 commission.

Two top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Stellar Winnings game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
