COLUMBIA, SC - The Lottery couldn't have scripted a better reaction. When a Ladson man showed his wife his winning lottery ticket, she screamed, flailing her arms and the ticket about. He followed with a manly fist pump and yell.
The screams continued after the $100,000 winning Money Machine scratch-off ticket sparked the celebration.
The couple is predicting a repeat performance when they pay off their cars and credit cards.
"It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood," said the husband accepting the check.
Four top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Money Machine game. The odds of winning $100,000 are 1 in 384,000.
