COLUMBIA, SC (July 1, 2021) – Who better to have by your side when you win the Lottery than your Mom?

An Upstate lottery player was with her mother when she bought a lottery ticket for $2, scratched it and won $30,000. The winning ticket was purchased at Eddies Food Mart on S. Church St. Ext. in Spartanburg.

“We went crazy,” said the daughter describing the moment it happened.

And Mom’s a winner too.

“She knows she’s going to get a little,” said the daughter.

Eddies Food Mart in Spartanburg received a commission of $300 for selling the claimed ticket.

The winner overcame odds of 1 in 432,000 to a top prize of $30,000 in the $2 Wild Cherry Doubler game. Two more top prizes remain in the game.
