South Carolina LotterySouth Carolina Lottery: South Carolina woman gives away entire lottery prizeRating:

Lottery winner wants to put a smile on someone else's face

By Kate Northrop

ORANGEBURG, S.C. — A generous lottery winner is giving away every cent of her lottery prize from a South Carolina Lottery instant game.

An anonymous South Carolina woman is not spending a single dime on herself after winning a $200,000 prize from a scratch-off.

"I don't want anything for me," she told the Lottery.

The selfless woman stepped foot in the Cannon Bridge convenience store on Cannon Bridge Road in Orangeburg and bought a $5 scratch-off ticket from the "Triple Red 777's" game.

After finding out that the ticket she bought was the winner of the game's last remaining top prize of $200,000, she decided that the money would be put to good use by others.

The best recipients of the prize, she thought, would be her family.

"They were appreciative," she said in a press release.

While her loved ones will reap the rewards of her generosity and good fortune, the retailer in Orangeburg is also being rewarded to the tune of a $2,000 bonus commission.

Since it was the final top prize left in the game, the Lottery announced that the "Triple Red 777's" game has been taken off the shelf and will no longer be available.

    Old habit that I have---reading into things.   Since she stayed anonymous sounds like she cashed it in and then gave out the money???  Not sure about the gift tax on this one.

      I think this year gifts up to $16,000 are tax-free.

             It is the oldest deek in the world for a lottery winner. It eliminates people continually hounding her for a share outside of family but she is only getting 134k in cash as it is. No need to even announce this win as no one would have bothered her.

                See how deceptive this story is, "Woman gives away entire lottery prize" . First thing that comes to mind is did she give it to a soup kitchen or some charity?. Fact is she gave it to her family. Not the connetation that was initially written. Giving away entire prize to your family, is the same as keeping it.

                  She's a good-hearted woman.

                  She needs a good-timin' man.

                    I thought the same thing lol.  If she gave it all to charity it would be a better story.  Anyone who won a prize like that would give some of it to their family.

                       A 134k prize is hardly enough to be doling out much cash to your family members outside of your immediate family which would consist of who exactly. OK, you could maybe buy your kids something certainly not over 500.00 (phones do not cost that much do they) Most would say we are putting it away for your college education which would cover about 2 semesters these days.
