Woman yanks ticket from husband after scratch-off reveals $500,000 SC lottery prize


A wife couldn’t contain her excitement after her husband scratched off a winning lottery ticket, according to South Carolina Education Lottery officials.

The woman said she was so overcome with joy that she “took the ticket from his hands” when she realized they had won the top prize on the $500,000 Multiplier Money game, lottery officials said in a Jan. 31 news release.

The Lowcountry couple visited a Refuel store on Daniel Island where the wife picked out the $10 ticket. She let her husband scratch it when they got home — and soon realized they had won big.

“I didn’t expect it, but it was wonderful,” the wife said, according to lottery officials.

The odds of winning a $500,000 prize are 1 in 660,000, the release states. Lottery officials said there are two remaining top prizes on the ticket.

Daniel Island is about 15 miles north of Charleston.
