Surprise Jackpot: SC Resident’s $1,000 Lottery Win Transforms into 6-Figure Prize

A Midlands resident’s $1,000 winning lottery ticket turned into a six-figure windfall. Purchased at Discount Beer and Tobacco on Augusta Highway in Lexington, the Crossword X-tra Play ticket initially seemed like a modest win. But upon claiming the prize, the lucky winner was stunned to discover it was actually worth $200,000.

“I was floored,” the winner expressed to lottery officials, unable to contain his astonishment. The unexpected windfall left him unable to sit down, emphasizing how the prize would greatly assist him. For selling the winning ticket, Discount Beer and Tobacco received a commission of $2,000.

The Crossword X-tra Play game still holds five additional $200,000 prizes. However, the odds of winning are slim, standing at 1 in 576,000, according to the S.C. Education Lottery. Maintaining privacy, the fortunate winner benefits from South Carolina’s policy allowing lottery winners to remain anonymous.
