Crenco Foods Stores #3894 at 2436 Mount Holly Road in Rock Hill sold the $125,000 winning ticket.

COLUMBIA, SC (February 5, 2019) – While out shopping for his mother, a Rock Hill man nonchalantly told the clerk to include some lottery tickets in his purchase.

“I just pointed and told the clerk, ‘Give me two of those,’” explained the gentleman.

While scratching the Quick $250! Ticket, the winner had his fingers over the prize amount. First he thought it was only a $25 win. Then he thought it was a $25,000 win. When he finally removed all his fingers he realized it was a $125,000 win!

“I’ve never even won a door prize,” the winner said while smiling. He plans to pay off some bills and purchase the new truck he has always wanted.

One top prize of $125,000 remains in the $5 instant ticket Quick $250! game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Crenco Foods Stores #3894 in Rock Hill received a commission of $1,250.
