These scholarships are funded by the lottery
A Columbia woman won $250,000 in the lottery using a popular children’s counting rhyme to select the ticket.
The $250,000 prize was won at the Murphy USA store located at 10058 Two Notch Road in Columbia, the S.C. Education Lottery said in a release Tuesday.
The winner used “Eeny-Meeny-Miny-Moe” to select which ticket she purchased, eventually selecting a $10 Towering 10s ticket, according to the release.
“I have the worst luck, but maybe that’s changed,” said the winner, who is not being identified.
Another $250,000 top prize remains in the Towering 10s game, according to the lottery. The odds of winning are one in 660,000.
