Summerville woman wins lottery twice in one week

A Summerville woman cashed in two winning lottery tickets within a week, following up a $1,000 win with another one for $200,000, according to state lottery officials.

The S.C. Education Lottery Commission announced the lucky woman’s winnings Tuesday but didn’t release her name.

The winner had not yet decided what to do with the money, Lottery spokeswoman Holli Armstrong said.

The ticket that won $200,000 was a $10 Triple Green 777 ticket purchased at the Oasis One Stop on North Main Street in Summerville. The store got a $2,000 commission.

The odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 600,000.

Another top prize of $200,000 remained to be claimed in the $10 Triple Green 777 game as of Tuesday afternoon, Armstrong said.
