COLUMBIA, SC (December 3, 2018) – A Chesterfield couple’s Christmas just got a lot merrier when the husband’s lotto numbers won him $100,000.

“We always buy gifts for the family and nothing for us,” said the winner’s wife.

But not this year, the couple is already thinking up ways they’ll enjoy their Palmetto Cash 5 prize.

“And the kids don’t know,” said the husband. “And I’m not telling them.”

His Palmetto Cash 5 ticket matched all five numbers drawn on November 24 (5, 7, 12, 23, and 27). Had he Powered-Up for an additional $1, his prize would have increased to $300,000 when a 3X multiplier was drawn.

The odds of winning $100,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 501,942.

For selling the claimed ticket, Markette #25 in Chesterfield received a commission of $1,000.
