COLUMBIA, SC (February 15, 2018) – It was a winning Valentine’s Day for a couple of Palmetto Cash 5 players last night. Tickets sold in Chesnee and Elgin are worth a lovely $200,000!

The Scotchman #3854 at 4884 Chesnee Hwy. in Chesnee and the Food Lion #2629 at 2465 Main St. in Elgin are the lucky destinations.
