COWPENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

South Carolina Education Lottery officials said a Cowpens woman is one lucky lady.

Officials said the woman won $250,000 playing the Diamond 9s scratch-off game, on top of a long list of wins, including several $500 lottery wins, a few $1,000 wins, and one $25,000 win.

The woman said she bought the winning ticket at the Li’l Cricket on Chesnee Highway

“It was like Christmas,” she said, describing the feeling of scratching off a quarter-of-a-million dollar prize sitting in her car outside the Lil Cricket on the Chesnee Hwy this week. 

The woman said she will use the money to replace the roof on her home and try her luck once more with a trip to Harrah’s casino.

The Chesnee woman earned the last $250,000 top prize in the Diamond 9s game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.
