COLUMBIA, SC (February 9, 2018) A new car is parked in the driveway of a Clinton home, after the owner won $250,000 playing the South Carolina Education Lottery.

Im just chilling, the winner told lottery officials who caught up with her a few days after she cashed in the big win and went shopping for a new car.

She admits scratching off a quarter-of-a-million dollar prize was shocking. Her win came on a $10 Gold Rush ticket she bought at the Speedee Mart on W. Main St. in Clinton.

It was like I was having a little heart attack, she said describing the moment she won.

Shes feeling good today and getting lots of compliments on her new ride.

Yeah, I tell people the Lottery helped pay for it, she laughed.

Two top prizes of $250,000 remain in the Gold Rush game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Speedee Mart in Clinton received a commission of $2,500.
