COLUMBIA, SC (March 17, 2023) – An Upstate woman had forgotten about her lottery ticket until she stopped in the store when she got it and found out someone won big. To her disbelief, it was her.

She checked her Palmetto Cash 5 with Power-Up ticket from Sam’s Corner at 604 Chesnee Hwy. in Spartanburg and her quick pick matched all five numbers drawn on February 1 (1, 2, 7, 14 and 26).

She won $300,000.

“I’m so glad I went to the store that day,” she told South Carolina Education Lottery officials. “It’s so good.”

For selling the claimed ticket, Sam’s Corner in Spartanburg received a commission of $3,000.

The odds of winning $300,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,405,438.
