COLUMBIA, SC (March 6, 2018) – An Upstate woman’s intuition paid off.

She was leaving The Spinx Company #110 on Augusta Rd. in Greenville when something told her to turn around and go back inside the store for a lottery ticket.

The hunch won her $250,000.

“She called me hollering,” said the winner’s husband, who didn’t believe her until he saw the winning $250,000 Extra Play scratch-off for himself.

“I’m happy,” he said of the win.

His wife is pretty pleased with how it all turned out too.

“I want to fix up the house,” she announced.

Two top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $250,000 Extra Play game, at odds of 1 in 700,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, The Spinx Company #110 in Greenville received a commission of $2,500.
