UNION, S.C. (WSPA) — A long-time lottery player in the Upstate won big.
The S.C. Education Lottery announced Tuesday that a Union man won $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5.
Lottery officials said the man whose name was not released “has been walking around with a big smile on his face and a secret” since he won last month.
He reportedly hasn’t told a soul about the winning ticket.
The numbers were drawn Oct. 9.
“I sat staring at my ticket. I still don’t believe this,” he told lottery officials.
His $100,000 prize was multiplied to $200,000 after a 2x multiplier was drawn.
The winning ticket was sold at KC Mart in Union.
Officials say the odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.
