Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (WBTW) – A Grand Strand woman waiting at a car wash scratches a lottery and is the biggest award ever offered at a scratch-off of an educational lottery in South Carolina, 2 million. I won a dollar.
“I can’t believe it,” said the winner. She told lottery officials that she was doing business with her mother who wanted to stop by Coastal Petro on Barker Road. I bought a $ 268 million lottery Powerball® ticket last Wednesday at Myrtle Beach.
She ran through a convenience store to get a ticket from her mom, and a huge cash scratch-off of $ 2,000,000 caught her eye. She bought herself a $ 10 scratch-off.
The next destination was a car wash. She was sitting by the vacuum cleaner when her boyfriend called and asked to get a ticket for Powerball® as well. She scratched her ticket and decided to use the prize money to buy his ticket. She didn’t expect to win $ 2 million.
“I didn’t feel lucky,” she said. “I didn’t have a great day, and I ended up winning the lottery.”
Harry Patel, who owns the Coastal Petro, says his luck changed that day as well. After 16 years of business, he finally sold a big winning ticket worth bragging about. Prior to the $ 2 million victory, the biggest prize he won at his store was $ 30,000. And he tells everyone that Coastal Petro is a lucky store.
“It feels good,” Patel said. “Our customers are happy with us and the winners.”
The lottery caught up with the winners a few days after cashing out the $ 2 million winning ticket. She has already paid off her house and is thinking of taking a vacation.
“I live comfortably, but I’m still working and my life is going on,” she said. “And I went back to the store and bought a ticket.”
Patel wants others to stop by Coastal Petro at 595 Burcale Rd. Try their luck too. “This is not our last big win,” he promised.
Myrtle Beach players overcame the odds of 1 in 2.64 million and won the final highest prize of $ 2 million in the $ 2,000,000 Colossal Cash game.
Coastal Petro in Myrtle Beach received a $ 20,000 commission on the sale of the billed ticket.
Players can enter huge amounts of cash that won’t win ($ 10) $ 2,000,000! Tickets to the Second Chance Lottery for the chance to win $ 2 million. For more information on the $ 2,000,000 Big Cash Second Chance Promotion, please visit sceducationlottery.com.
