COLUMBIA, SC (February 2, 2023) – An Upstate man won half-a-million dollars playing the Lottery and couldn’t wait to show his wife the winning ticket. There was just one problem.
“When she saw it, she thought it was a fake,” he said.
But his wife’s a believer now that he’s cashed in the $500,000 prize.
The husband won big off a $10 scratch-off from the Scotchman #3823 at 7274 Reidville Rd. in Woodruff. He says he stopped by the store for a cup of coffee and decided to get a ticket. The result he called “a shock,” adding the most he’d ever won before was $300.
“I’d like to win many times more,” the husband joked. “But it was a great once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Today the couple is debt free with money set aside for their kids’ future.
The winner overcame odds of 1 in 660,000 to win $500,000 in the $500,000 Multiplier Money game. Two more top prizes remain on the ticket.
Scotchman #3823 in Woodruff received a commission of $5,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
