South Carolina LotterySouth Carolina Lottery: S.C. woman claims biggest Pick 4 payout in state's historyRating:

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A Florence, South Carolina, woman cashed in on the largest Pick 4 payout to a single person in S.C. lottery history.

According to lottery officials, the winning tickets were worth a combined $304,000.

The winning combination was her mom's birth date, 1-1-4-3, drawn the evening of September 17.

She played those numbers 30 times. Ten times she played her numbers straight, betting $5 each time to win $250,000.  Twenty times she played her numbers straight/box, betting $1 each time to win $54,000.

The winner, who by South Carolina lottery law is permitted to remain anonymous to the public, invested $70 into the lottery tickets and ended up taking home a $304,000 payday.

She said that was her strategy for winning and has been on and off for two years, but she was still surprised when it paid off in such a big way.

"I screamed," she said when her numbers were drawn. "Now this gives me a chance to help other people."

She told lottery officials she wasn't feeling well that day and wasn't going to play her numbers, when something told her to get up.

"It just came across me," she said. "Now this gives me a chance to help other people."

She plans to keep playing but try her children's birth dates next.

Cruizers on E. Palmetto St. in Florence receives a $3,040 commission for selling the claimed tickets.

          Not if you play other states numbers... Sometimes they hit exact/straight 10-15 draws back...

              CONGRATULATIONS Party

               

              Guess that's why we'll never win the Lotto. If we had $70. or more for Lottery tickets then we wouldn't need to play!

                This story speaks for itself in 2 ways. Number 1, gut reaction. As she said, she wasn't feeling well but something told her to her to play, and she did. It paid off big. Secondly, the same numbers. Her Mom's birthday. She probably has played those numbers multiple times, and now it paid. Moral of the story, "your numbers will come".

                      If she spent $70 each time she played, imagine how much she lost in the past.

                      That's a big win, but how much is profit and how much was just getting past losses back.

                          Off on and on for 2 years is still quite a bit of money.. most people who play like this don't usually wager the same exact high amount each draw i'm certain... but $304,000 I dont think she spent that much before the win.. great job to her
