COLUMBIA, SC (September 7, 2017) – A Donalds’ woman is taking her $125,000 South Carolina Education Lottery win to the home improvement store.

“I’m fixing up my house,” she said.

She won the prize on a $5 Big Money Maker scratch-off from Dorsey’s Quick Stop on Church St. in Honea Path. A friend told her she turned beet red in the face when she saw she’d won $125,000.

“What to repair first?” she pondered awaiting the check for her winnings.

Now that the prize is paid, Dorsey’s Quick Stop in Honea Path receives a $1,250 commission.

Four top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Big Money Maker game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
