GA woman on her way to birthday party wins a million dollars in Upstate
ANDERSON, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A woman from Georgia was on her way to a family member’s birthday party when she played the South Carolina Education Lottery in the Upstate and won $1 million.
The woman FaceTimed her husband from the B.K. World at 3027 North Main Street in Anderson to show him the $10 ticket that she bought.
“You won $1 million, why are you so calm?” her husband asked.
“Because it hasn’t sunk in,” she said.
Lottery officials said the couple made plans to meet after the birthday party and drive to Columbia to cash in the winning ticket.
The Education Lottery caught up with the millionaire a few days later. She says her husband has already bought something special for himself, but she hasn’t yet.
“Until I make a big purchase, it’s not real,” she said.
