COLUMBIA, SC (January 22, 2018) When a Spartanburg woman scratched off a quarter-of-a-million dollar lottery win, there was only one person she wanted to share the news with.

Moms verdict: God is good, she said hugging her daughter.

And the daughter is going to be good to her mom.

Im going to bless my family, the winner said.
