COLUMBIA, S.C. — It may be fairly warm in South Carolina for an October day, but that doesn't matter to a recent South Carolina Education Lottery winner. She's going to find somewhere even warmer.
Outside of that, a Midlands area woman has a lot to work out after drawing her Super Cash winning ticket on Harbison Boulevard. The winner said she scratched off the $300,000 ticket while sitting in her car.
"I was speechless," she told lottery officials. "I'm going to do some things I've been wanting to do for a long time, starting with a vacation."
She didn't say where - only that it will be "somewhere warm."
The winning Super Cash ticket was sold at Speedway #02859 located at 271 Harbison Boulevard in Columbia. As such, the store is receiving a $3,000 commission.
The odds of winning the $300,000 Super Cash prize are 1 in 900,000. However, lottery officials say there are still three additional $300,000 prizes remaining.
