COLUMBIA, SC (January 14, 2019) – A Clinton husband was firing up the grill when his wife walked up with a burning question.

“Did I win the Lottery?” she asked.

Unsure, he left his steaks to rest and went with his wife to a lottery retailer to have her ticket looked at. It was worth $250,000.

“I couldn’t eat or sleep after that,” the winner told lottery officials in Columbia.

Disappointed his dinner plans were ruined, the husband made new plans.

“We’re going on a good vacation,” he said.

Three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Gold & Silver Jackpot game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, The Home Store in Clinton received a commission of $2,500.
