LAURENS Co., S.C. (WSPA) – Lottery officials say a Clinton husband was preparing to grill steaks when his wife interrupted with a “burning” question.

She wanted to know if she had won the lottery.

The couple went to a lottery retailer to double check and learned they won $250,000.

Dinner may have been ruined, but they’re making plans for a vacation.

Lottery officials say the woman won one of the top prizes in the Gold & Silver Jackpot game.

Three top prizes remain in the game, according to lottery officials.

The odds of winning are 1 in 660,000.

The winning ticket was sold at The Home Store in Clinton.

Officials say the store will receive a $2,500 commission for selling the winning ticket.
