COLUMBIA, SC (January 31, 2017) A Columbia man surprised his wife by coming home from work early. He kissed her and told her they won the lottery.

It was a win he saw coming.

I had a dream about it, he said. I won $125,000, and the dream was so clear.

The dream came true last week when he scratched off a $125,000 win on a Lucky Loot ticket. He was sitting in his car in the parking lot at work when it happened.

I regained my composure and went in and told my boss I was going home, he said.

His wife was glad to see him walk through the door smiling.

After she heard the good news, I felt relieved, she said.

Circle K Stores #5131 in Lexington sold the winning ticket. Now that the prize is paid, the store receives a $1,250 commission.

Four top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Lucky Loot game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
