‘I’ll work a little less’: Florence lotto player wins $200K on scratch-off
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WMBF) – A Pee Dee lottery player is cutting back his work hours after winning $200,000 on a scratch-off game.
The lucky ticket - the $5 Pink Sapphire Payout game – was purchased at the Sav Way #28 on Second Loop Road in Florence, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery.
“I enjoy working,” the winner said. “But I’ll work a little less.”
Officials say the winner overcame odds of 1 in 750,000 to leave two top prizes of $200,000 in the $5 Pink Sapphire Payout game remaining.
Sav Way #28 in Florence received a commission of $2,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
