COLUMBIA, SC (April 6, 2017) – The memory of a Bluffton family’s dog inspired their recent lottery win.

The license number of the dearly departed family pet won its owners $100,000.

“He was a great dog,” said the owner, who honored his dog by playing the license number combination 2, 3, 4, 7 and 9 on a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket for the drawing on Saturday, March 11.

He was a lucky dog too.

Now that the numbers have won, the owner’s not certain he’ll play the Lottery again.

His wife hopes that not the case.

“Maybe you could play another dog’s license number,” she suggested.

The odds of winning $100,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 501,942.

For selling the claimed ticket, Publix Super Market 1354 in Hardeeville received a commission of $1,000.
