The SC Lottery says a Spartanburg husband buys lottery tickets and his wife checks to see if they won.
Sunday morning, her husband handed over a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket he had in his pocket worth $400,000.
“I couldn’t believe it,” she said after verifying 27, 30, 31, 34, and 38 were a match for Saturday’s results. “I stared at the ticket and then stared at my husband and then stared back at the ticket.”
“It’s a good feeling,” said the husband, who bought the ticket, a quick pick, at the Kangaroo Express #1500 on John B. White Sr. Blvd. in Spartanburg.
The lottery say, since he Powered-Up for an extra $1, his would be $100,000 win was quadrupled to $400,000 when a “4” multiplier was selected. Odds of winning $400,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 4,015,536.
