Sumter man predicts lottery win | News
A Sumter man said he was going to win the Lottery and a half hour later he delivered.
“I just knew I was going to win,” he explained.
Two witnesses back up his story.
After working the night shift, the psychic and two co-workers stopped in at Lees Grocery in Sumter to hang out and scratch a few lotto tickets. One of the fellows won $100. Right on cue, our winner picked out one worth $200,000.
“I’m a lucky guy,” he said.
“I didn’t win anything,” confessed the co-worker that gave him a ride to Columbia to cash in the Platinum Payout ticket. “It’s not luck he won, it’s a blessing.”
“He’s always been freehanded and would give people money, even when he didn’t have it to give,” added his co-worker.
As of this release, six top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Platinum Payout game.
The odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 375,000.
Lees Grocery received a commission of $2,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than one million college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $2.6 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
