COLUMBIA, SC (November 6, 2018) A Union man has been walking around with a big smile on his face and a secret.

He hasnt told a sole the smile stems from winning a $200,000 lottery prize.

I play the lottery every day, he told lottery officials when he cashed in his winning Palmetto Cash 5 ticket.

And he checks his ticket every evening to see if hes won. His lucky numbers came in the evening of Tuesday, October 9 (9, 27, 28, 35 and 38).

I sat staring at my ticket, he said. I still dont believe this.

Because he Powered-Up his ticket for an extra $1, his $100,000 prize multiplied to $200,000 when a 2x multiplier was drawn.

The odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.

For selling the claimed ticket, KC Mart in Union received a commission of $2,000.
