COLUMBIA, SC: One Woodruff man is calling it “quits,” now that won $200,000 on Powerball®. He correctly matched all five white numbers in the Wednesday, September 13, drawing. The winning numbers were 15, 19, 26, 45 and 47. The Powerball® number was 3. The 57 year-old man, who wants to remain anonymous, paid an extra dollar for the PowerPlay® option which multiplies his winnings. The PowerPlay® number was 4.

“God gave me five white numbers in a row and I’m glad,” said Woodruff man. “Now I can retire and I’m happy!”

The winner plans to retire from Hayseen Manufacturing in Duncan. “I am a machinist. I’ve never like my job but it paid the bills and now I don’t need it and I’m letting it go.”

The Woodruff man stated his supervisor is scrambling to find his replacement. “My supervisor called me in a panic wanting to know if I was gone. I told him not yet, but in three weeks, I’m outta there, babe!”

The winner quick picked his numbers at Li`l Cricket #213 located at 407 South Main Street in Woodruff. The retailer will receive a 1% selling incentive for any redeemed winning ticket worth $10,000 or more sold at his/her store.

“I’m glad my lucky lady works there and I hope she gets some of it.”

The Woodruff winner collected his winnings at the Columbia Claims Center along with four of his seven children. While he doesn’t have a wife, “I’m not interested. I’ve got money I don’t need a wife anymore. I got my kinds and my money. We’re set.”
