CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — A Charleston woman won big – twice – while playing the South Carolina Education Lottery.
State lottery officials said the lucky player purchased a winning Palmetto Cash 5 ticket from the Circle K on Meeting Street for the Sept. 5 drawing.
“On one row she matched all five numbers to win the $100,000 Palmetto Cash 5 top prize. She played four of those numbers again, changing only one, on another line on the ticket to win $300,” officials said.
The woman said she has been playing the lottery for a long time and was excited when she won. She plans to spend her winnings on a home remodel.
The Circle K received a commission of $1,000 for selling the winning ticket.
