MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – A Myrtle Beach retiree was playing to win a jackpot but won $100,000 instead.
“I was stunned,” the winner said.
The lucky winner went in the Speedway store on Holmestown Road for a Powerball ticket when a $5 scratch-off caught his eye. So he bought both tickets.
The Lucky 7 scratcher lived up to its name, winning him the top prize of $100,000.
“There was a lot of luck involved,” he laughed.
Two top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Lucky 7 game, at odds of 1 in 432,000.
For selling the claimed ticket, Speedway in Myrtle Beach received a commission of $1,000.
