Mystery solved! Dillon man claims $200,000 winning lottery ticket

A Dillon man didn't have a clue how much his Carolina Cash 6 ticket was worth until lottery representatives told him.
"I don't even know what the winning numbers are," he confessed.
He matched them all - 4, 6, 8, 14, 32, and 33 for Monday June 10's drawing.
"I've never won anything in my life," he said.
Hours earlier, he was at Selma Convenience Store on Hwy. 9 in Dillon checking the ticket he bought from the store for Monday's drawing.
The clerk told him his Carolina Cash 6 ticket was a winner, but for an amount more than the store could pay out of the register. He'd have to take the ticket to Columbia to find out. Knowing nothing more, he drove straight to the Lottery's Claims Center to find out what he had won.
"I haven't even told my wife," he said. "I have no idea what she'll say."
A six-number game, Carolina Cash 6's top prize includes Federal and state taxes which are withheld to net $200,000.
Odds of winning the $200,000 TAXES PAID top prize are 1 in 920,227.
Selma Convenience Store in Dillon received a commission of $2,941.43 for selling the claimed ticket. This marks the second top prize win since the game launched in April.
