COLUMBIA, SC (September 9, 2022) – A Swansea lottery player brought home a pizza and $50,000.

After picking up the pizza, she says she stopped by the Rainbow Gas Garden #15 at 100 N. Church St. in Swansea for a couple of $2 lottery tickets.

“I don’t play a lot,” she admitted to lottery officials. “And, I didn’t scratch the tickets right away.”

She waited until after the family ate and then scratched the Jumbo Bucks tickets. One of them was the top prize winner.

“I didn’t believe it, and my family didn’t believe it either,” she said.

She plans to save the prize money.

The Swansea player won the last top prize of $50,000 in the Jumbo Bucks game at odds of 1 in 600,000.

Rainbow Gas Garden #15 in Swansea received a commission of $500 for selling the claimed ticket.
