Debt is heavy, but one Edgefield couple is feeling a little lighter.
A woman scratching off a Carolina Millionaires Club ticket in her car locked her doors and called her husband when she discovered she had won a $1 million jackpot.
“We are debt free!” she told him, according to the S.C. Education Lottery.
“Did you win the lottery?” he asked.
Actually, yes, was her answer.
The couple are not revealing their names, but the woman said she is planning an early retirement to the beach.
The woman is the third $1 million winner in the game, which started Jan. 4. She bought her ticket at the Circle K #3184 in North Augusta. There are two more $1 million tickets to be found. The odds of winning that amount are 1 in 1.2 million.
