COLUMBIA, SC (March 29, 2019) – A Charleston woman was given a $3 lottery ticket and it paid off, winning her $100,000.

“It was a gift from a dear friend,” she said.

Having never played the Lottery before, she was surprised when the Lady Jumbo Bucks Crossword ticket spelled out 11 words to win her the game’s top prize.

“I still get emotional thinking about it,” the winner said.

Two top prizes of $100,000 in the $3 Lady Jumbo Bucks Crossword game, at odds of 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Dodges Store #863 on the Savannah Hwy. in Johns Island received a commission of $1,000.
