“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.
One of the great things about the lottery is anyone can win. No matter what their lifestyle is, what hobbies they enjoy, or how much money they have or don’t have; anyone can walk into a store and buy that winning lottery ticket.
It’s the not knowing part of the lottery that makes it even more exciting. When you buy that ticket you just never know how it is going to end up until you find out what those winning numbers are.
Many of us can only imagine having a store clerk tell us that they are unable to pay out the amount of our winning ticket. This must have definitely been one of the days in this man’s life that he won’t forget anytime soon.
