Columbia, SC: Sandra Bishop, of Anderson, is no stranger to the list of South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) winners. On Monday, April 24, 2006, she won the highest amount she’s ever won, $500,000, playing Palmetto Cash 5! Bishop matched all five numbers to win $100,000 and purchased the Power-Up multiplier. The Power-Up number drawn was 5.

“I was the first person to win a heating system in Clean$weep, I won $1,800 on Palmetto Cash 5, and my husband has won $1,000,” said Bishop. “And I win $50 with Clean$weep just about every month.”

Bishop has also won several Ultimate Harley-Davidson® and NASCAR® prize packs, as well as other lottery prizes. When asked what her key to winning was, Bishop replied, “The Lord has just really blessed us.” In fact, SCEL’s Greenville claims assistants know her by first name.

With her win on Palmetto Cash 5, Bishop plans to sit back and relax. “We are going to buy some real estate, and we’re going to pay for the house we’re in.”

Bishop purchased her winning ticket at Whitehall Express Mart located at 704 Whitehall Road in Anderson.

Palmetto Cash 5 drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 6:59 p.m.

Clean$weep is a second-chance drawing where players can mail-in 10 non-winning instant tickets in an envelope for a drawing to win $50. The Clean$weep mailing address is PO Box 11488, Columbia, SC, 29211.
