Lottery Winner in Clinton


It’s a New Car for a Clinton Lottery Winner


Speedee Mart at 730 W. Main St. in Clinton sold the $250,000 winning ticket


A new car is parked in the driveway of a Clinton home, after the owner won $250,000 playing the South Carolina Education Lottery.

“I’m just chilling,” the winner told lottery officials who caught up with her a few days after she cashed in the big win and went shopping for a new car.

She admits scratching off a quarter-of-a-million dollar prize was shocking. Her win came on a $10 Gold Rush ticket she bought at the Speedee Mart on W. Main St. in Clinton.

“It was like I was having a little heart attack,” she said describing the moment she won.

She’s feeling good today and getting lots of compliments on her new ride. “Yeah, I tell people the Lottery helped pay for it,” she laughed.

Two top prizes of $250,000 remain in the Gold Rush game, at odds of 1 in 660,000. For selling the claimed ticket, Speedee Mart in Clinton received a commission of $2,500.
