Conway, S.C. (WPDE) —
Myrtle Beach woman is planning on a big holiday season after winning $125,000 on a scratch-off lottery ticket, according to a news release from the South Carolina Education Lottery.
She scratched off the top prize win on the $125,000 Large ticket at home in her living room, the release said.
“I kept staring at it,” she told lottery officials, and her family was just as shocked when they saw the ticket for themselves.
Her birthday is coming soon, so she told officials she’ll wait on gifts.
“We’ll have a big Christmas,” she said, according to the release.
The South Carolina Education Lottery says Murphy USA #7618 in Myrtle Beach received a $1,250 commission for selling the winning ticket and one top prize of $125,000 remains in the $125,000 Large game, at odds of 1 in 600,000.
