COLUMBIA, SC (May 2, 2018) Two best friends were hanging out and scratching lottery tickets when one of them struck it rich, winning $125,000.

It happened in Beech Island over the weekend on a ticket purchased from the Ye Olde Grocery on Jefferson Davis Hwy.

It made me mad, laughed the friend who didnt win.

I wish we could do it again, and soon, the winner responded.

And there are no hard feelings. In fact, the winner says hes going to do something nice for his best friend.

I was my lucky day, the winner said.

For selling the claimed ticket, Ye Olde Grocery received a commission of $1,250.

One top prize of $125,000 remains in the $5 Rapid 7 Doubler game, at odds of 1 in 595,200.
