COLUMBIA, SC (March 24, 2017) – A Sumter County man is celebrating his second big lottery win after taking home a $200,000 prize yesterday.
It must have felt like déjà vu for the winner, who several years ago won $100,000 playing the same Palmetto Cash 5 game.
“I’m not lucky,” he said.
He’s just persistent and he never misses a drawing.
“If you play long enough, you’ll win,” he explained.
In Wednesday night’s drawing, a ticket he purchased from Dalzell Grocery on the Thomas Sumter Hwy. in Dalzell matched all five numbers drawn (13, 28, 32, 36 and 38).
Because he Powered-up, his prize doubled to $200,000 when a “2” multiplier was selected.
With his first lottery win he says he took care of his needs, but this time he’s going to help others.
The odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.
For selling the claimed ticket, Dalzell Grocery received a commission of $2,000.
