COLUMBIA, SC (April 11, 2024) – A Georgetown woman says she was leaving a convenience store when something told her to turn around and get two scratch-offs.  She is glad she did. One of the tickets won her $500,000.

“It was unexpected,” she told lottery officials. “I ran out of the store and went straight home.”

She won the half-a-million dollar payday off a $10 scratch-off from the SM Mart on S. Fraser St. in Georgetown.

“It’s changed my bank account, but it hasn’t changed me,” she said.

The win leaves two top prizes of $500,000 in 100X The Cash game at odds of 1 in 960,000.

SM Mart Georgetown in Georgetown received a commission of $5,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
