COLUMBIA, SC (March 23, 2018) – A Taylors couple stayed up late last night. They popped popcorn, made a pot of coffee and talked over what they’d do to with their $250,000 lottery win.

“We went to sleep around 2:30 a.m.,” the wife said.

She bought home the winning ticket from the Kash N Karry on St. Mark Rd. in Taylors. She told lottery officials she scratched the ticket sitting in her car in the store’s parking lot.

“It’s changed my life,” she said.

The couple says they will be debt free, and when the weather gets warmer want to take a trip to the beach.

“I think I could sleep for a couple of days,” the husband said.

Five top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Fantastic 10s game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Kash N Karry in Taylors received a commission of $2,500.
