A North Charleston woman who recently won $100,000 in the lottery has been spending her winnings on others, South Carolina Education Lottery officials said.
Lottery officials did not identify the woman, who scored on a $5 Winning Streak scratch-off purchased from the Food Lion on Dorchester Road. But they said she so far has used her money to help her mother, sister, church and neighbors.
“I can’t think of anything I want,” the woman said in a written statement. “But when I see something I like, I’ll buy it.”
Five top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Winning Streak game. Odds of winning the top prize are one in 400,000, lottery spokeswoman Holli Armstrong said.
For selling the claimed ticket, the Food Lion store received a commission of $1,000, Armstrong said.
