COLUMBIA, S.C. — With the power of just one five-dollar scratch-off lottery ticket, a Sumter woman was able to easily check off two things on her bucket list.
A Sumter lottery player, who the company says wished to remain anonymous, purchased the "Win Big" lottery ticket from the Refuel gas station on Manning Road in Sumter, South Carolina.
She took the ticket home and scratched it while standing in her yard. She wasted no time calling her family so that they could get a look at the seemingly golden ticket.
The new winner told the lottery that it was nice to win the money.
“First I’m paying off my house,” she said. “Then I’m getting my dream car.”
There is one top prize left in the Win Big game at odds of 1 in 660,000. The Refuel in Sumter received a commission of $2,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
