COLUMBIA, SC (March 28, 2017) – A Rock Hill man says he almost threw away a $125,000 winning lottery ticket.

“I started shaking,” he said when he took a second look and realized his ticket’s value.

Relieved, he says he hopped in his car parked at the Local Market #6 on W. Main St. in Rock Hill where he stopped for gas and bought the winning Queen of Green scratch-off to go find his girlfriend and tell her the good news.

“I’m buying us a house,” he said.

But first, he had to go fill up his car, he forgot.

Local Market #6 in Rock Hill 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 Queen of Green game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
