CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A party broke out at a Conway residence when the homeowners realized they had won $400,000 playing the Palmetto Cash 5 lottery last weekend.

“I freaked out,” said the winner’s wife, when her husband, who could barely speak, told her he won the prize.

The Palmetto Cash 5 ticket was purchased in Conway for the Saturday night drawing; the ticket is worth $400,000 and was purchased at the Sunhouse #11 at 2698 Hwy 90.

The Palmetto Cash 5 ticket matched all five numbers drawn on Saturday, November 28, for a prize of $400,000. The ticket holder “Powered-Up” for an additional $1, to see the $100,000 top prize multiplied to $400,000.

The winner’s family was still in town after Thanksgiving, and the win called for a celebration.

“And we partied,” said the winner, who has played Palmetto Cash 5 every day for the last four years. “I like playing even more so now,” he admitted to lottery officials Monday.

A new car for his wife, and a trip to Disney with the grandkids were mentioned as possible uses of the winnings.
