COLUMBIA, SC (December 18, 2017) – An Orangeburg mother of two wins $275,000 playing the Lottery’s biggest ticket a week before Christmas.

“I purchased the ticket and put it in my pocketbook,” said the winner. This ticket doesn’t fit in your pocket.

The $10 ticket she won with is Royal Jewel Jackpot, one of the Lottery’s new Gigantix® tickets which are over twice the size of a regular lottery ticket. Circle K #5389 at 2744 North Road in Orangeburg sold the $275,000 winning ticket.

The winner plans to purchase a home for her family.

Seven top prizes of $275,000 remain in the $10 Royal Jewel Jackpot game, at odds of 1 in 750,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Circle K #5389 in Orangeburg received a commission of $2,750.
