COLUMBIA, SC (August 29, 2019) – A Bowman woman bought a soda and a lottery ticket, and it was the ticket that quenched her thirst.

“I wasn’t thirsty anymore,” she admitted after winning $250,000 on the In The Money scratch-off.

The winner told lottery officials she scratched the ticket sitting in her car in the parking lot of the Quick Store on the Charleston Hwy. in Orangeburg, and her heart skipped a beat when she saw just how much she’d won.

“I went in to buy a soda,” she said. “Now I have a retirement gift.”

One top prize of $250,000 remains in the $10 In The Money game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Quick Store in Orangeburg received a commission of $2,500.
