COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Three separate Upstate lottery players have luck on their side after winning thousands of dollars each.
South Carolina Education Lottery officials said a Piedmont man won $200,000 and two separate $100,000 lottery tickets were sold in Gaffney.
One man bought a $10 Platinum Payout 25X ticket at the J and J Mart on Highway 86 in Piedmont, which will get a $2,000 commission for selling the claimed ticket.
He told lottery officials his wife yelled at him for buying lottery tickets, but she was happy now that he won.
In Gaffney, two other lottery ticket holders were happy, too, after buying a winning Palmetto Cash 5 ticket and a Holiday Wishes scratch-off.
The Pilot Travel Center store on Hyatt Street sold the winning $100,000 Cash 5 ticket to a Mooresville, NC man for the Nov. 14 drawing. Lottery officials said the man noticed on Saturday he had all five numbers matched.
The Gaffney woman who bought the winning $100,000 scratch-off ticket at the Auto Shop on Cherokee Avenue told lottery officials she and her mom were ecstatic to win.
Both stores will get a $1,000 commission for selling the claimed tickets.
