COLUMBIA, SC (August 11, 2022) – A Florence man won $300,000 playing the Lottery and the first thing he did was tell his wife.

The winner says he was at sitting at home when he scratched the $10 ticket he’d purchased from the Oakland Grocery on Oakland Ave. in Florence. When he saw he won big, he called his wife over to tell her the good news and see the ticket for herself.

“She was more excited than I was,” the husband admitted to lottery officials.

The couple is paying off their house with the prize money.

The winner overcame odds of 1 in 900,000 to leave four top prizes of $300,000 remaining in the Red Cherry Tripler ticket.

Oakland Grocery in Florence received a commission of $3,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
