COLUMBIA, SC (August 29, 2017) – A Spartanburg woman opened last Sunday’s paper to some good news.

“Woooooo!” she screamed.

The Powerball® numbers in the newspaper revealed her $200,000 lottery win.

“I want a car,” she said.

She played her numbers at Sam’s Corner, a popular spot for lottery play in Spartanburg. The lucky retailer is located on the Chesnee Hwy.
