COLUMBIA, SC (November 11, 2021) – Over the last two months, the Hot Spot convenience store in the small town of Gresham, SC, has sold winning lottery tickets worth $50,000, $75,000 and now $200,000.

The recent $200,000 winner is a tourist. She stopped in the lucky store on W. Hwy 378 on her way to the beach. She paid $10 for a Bonus Star Bonanza scratch-off and took home a souvenir that will pay off her house.

“It made vacation better,” she admitted to lottery officials after cashing in the winning ticket.

The other two wins at the store happened in September. A Powerball® player won $50,000 and another customer won $75,000 on a scratch-off.

Hot Spot #2021 in Gresham received a commission of $2,000 for selling the claimed Bonus Star Bonanza ticket. One top prize of $200,000 remains in the game at odds of 1 in 720,000.
