AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- An Aiken woman should update her Facebook status to "feeling rich" after winning $75,000 from the lottery.

While her husband is still shaking his head over his wife’s decision to announce the win on Facebook, according to a press release, he admits he saw the win coming.

The couple told lottery officials how in the past few weeks, Wood won $50 twice on Platinum Crossword tickets her husband gave her. She then bought one of the $3 tickets and won $30 and then picked out the $75,000 winner.

“Every one of those crossword tickets she touched was a winner,” said her husband.

For selling the claimed winning ticket, Airport Shell in Aiken received a commission of $750.
