Scratch-Off Ticket Proves To Be $100K Winner For Marietta Couple

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. - A Marietta woman played a prank on her husband, telling him she won the lottery then calling back to say it was a joke.

The prank was up when she showed him the winning $100,000 CASHTA$TIC ticket last Friday.

 The couple collected their winnings this week at the lottery office in Columbia. They said their money worries are over and their already spoiled grand kids are about to get spoiled rotten.

 According to lottery officials, three top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 CASHTA$TIC game. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Spinx Company #251 in Greenville received a commission of $1,000.
