A Holly Hill lottery player didn’t think top prize-winning lottery tickets existed until she bought one and won $500,000.
“I was shocked, surprised and speechless,” the winner told South Carolina Education Lottery officials.
“I still am.”
She purchased a $500,000 Jackpot ticket at the Quick Stop on Old State Road in Holly Hill, took the ticket home, scratched it and jumped for joy when a half-of-a-million dollar prize was revealed.
“This will help my family,” the woman said.
She overcame odds of 1 in 660,000 to win the last top prize of $500,000 in the $500,000 Jackpot game.
Quick Stop in Holly Hill received a commission of $5,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
