COLUMBIA, SC (August 9, 2021) – A Lowcountry woman ran into the grocery store for one item, a lottery ticket. She ran out $100,000 richer.

She stopped by the Harris Teeter on Long Pointe Rd. in Mount Pleasant and picked up a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket. She quick picked her numbers for the July 26 drawing. When she checked the results on her cell phone, she couldn’t believe it. All five numbers 11, 12, 15, 23, and 25 on her ticket matched.

There’s only one problem.

“I don’t even know how I’m going to spend it,” she said.

For selling the claimed ticket, Harris Teeter LLC #87 in Mount Pleasant received a commission of $1,000.

The odds of winning $100,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 501,942.
