COLUMBIA, SC (July 1, 2019) – A Greenwood woman spent a sleepless night holding a $125,000 winning lottery ticket close.

“I held it tight to my chest,” she told lottery officials the next day when she cashed in the winning ticket.

She says she laid awake thinking of ways to spend the prize money. She settled on paying off her husband’s truck, writing checks to the kids and booking a vacation for herself.

“Now I need to take a nap,” she said.

The Greenwood winner claimed the last top prizes of $125,000 in the ($5) Power Shot Multiplier game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, G Food Mart in Greenwood received a commission of $1,250.
