SC woman wins $2 Million in MegaMillions lottery
BEAUFORT, SC – According to lottery officials, a lottery ticket won $2 million for a Beaufort woman.
The woman says she stopped at the Parkers on the Savannah Hwy in Beaufort after voting earlier that day. There she purchased a drink and a MegaMillions ticket.
The next day, she checked her Mega Millions® ticket. While she thought she won $1,000, her husband looked at the ticket and disagreed.
“No, I think it’s more than that,” he said.
The couple matched the first five numbers drawn on October 9 to win $1 million. Because she spent the extra $1 for Megaplier®, the prize was doubled to $2 million.
The odds of the $2 million win are 1 in 12,607,306.
The Parkers received a commission of $20,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
