NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- A Lowcountry couple has plenty of reason to celebrate after nabbing a six-figure lottery prize.
The husband quick-picked the winning numbers at the A Plus convivence store on University Boulevard in North Charleston for the Sept. 6 Powerball drawing.
“It’s still hard to believe,” the husband told lottery officials.
The ticket matched four white ball numbers and the red Powerball number to win the $150,000 prize, coming just one number shy of a then half-a-billion dollar jackpot.
“Winning felt good,” he said, adding that he used the winnings to pay off his house.
The couple overcame odds of 1 in 913,129.
The A Plus store received a $1,500 commission for selling the claimed ticket.
