COLUMBIA, SC (November 9, 2017) – A Greenville woman couldn’t contain her excitement when she found out her husband won the Lottery. She started dancing.

A $125,000 taxes paid prize gave her happy feet.

“I don’t know what kind of dance I was doing, but I made something up,” she said thrilled about the fun possibilities ahead.

The couple has over a dozen grandkids, and grandma says they’ll have a big Christmas this year.

The husband bought the winning $125,000 Taxes Paid scratch-off at Mike & Jack on Augusta Rd. in Pelzer. He scratched off the winning numbers, and then he handed the ticket over to his wife to scratch-off the prize won.

“If it’s a few dollars, he’ll just let me keep the ticket,” said his wife.

But he kept this one.

“He wants a new truck,” said his wife. “Men and their toys.”

Now that the prize is paid, Mike & Jake in Greenville receive a $1,838.24 commission for selling the winning ticket.

Three top prizes of $125,000 remain in the ($5) $125,000 Taxes Paid game, at odds of 1 in 528,000.
