COLUMBIA, SC (February 15, 2017) – A Beaufort husband always thought he’d be the one to win the Lottery, not his wife.
He’s a regular player. She buys tickets on a whim.
“He’s determined,” the wife admitted.
But she’s the one with a $200,000 winning ticket.
“I’m waiting for the big bucks,” her husband explained.
The wife told lottery officials she only plays when she has a good feeling. And, that was the case last week when she bought a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket at the Citgo on the Savannah Hwy. in Beaufort.
Her intuition was spot on. All five numbers on her ticket were a match for the drawing on Thursday February 9 (5, 8, 12, 36, and 38). She also Powered-Up to increase her prize with the 2X multiplier.
“I couldn’t sleep after that,” the wife said. “I was too excited.”
“I slept fine,” her husband said. “I’ll be back with my own winning ticket.”
Maybe his wife will give him a ride in her new car.
The odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.
For selling the claimed ticket, Citgo in Beaufort received a commission of $2,000.
