COLUMBIA, SC (September 20, 2022) – A spontaneous decision to play the Lottery won a Midlands woman $200,000.

“No reason why,” she explained. “I thought while I’m here getting gas, I’ll get a ticket too.”

So, for $2 she quick picked some Palmetto Cash 5 numbers at the S M Mart on Hwy. 1 S. in Lugoff for the drawing on August 28 (4, 16, 26, 27 and 33). The impromptu ticket purchase matched all five numbers drawn. Her prize doubled to $200,000, because she added Power-Up.

“It came at an awesome time,” the winner said. “It’s so exciting.”

For selling the claimed ticket, S M Mart in Lugoff received a commission of $2,000.

The odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 878,399.
