FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A Florence grandmother won $125,000 playing the South Carolina Education Lottery at Sav Way located at 1327 Second Loop Rd. in Florence.

The grandmother told lottery officials that her goal was to stop to several area retailers once a week and purchase lottery tickets, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery press release.

She bought a $125,000 Big Money scratch-off about a week ago and won the top prize, the release states.

“I feel like I’ve been blessed,” the Florence grandmother said.

The winner plans on tipping her son for cutting her grass and taking the family on a vacation, according to the release. 

Sav Way 28 will receive a $1,250 commission for selling the winning ticket.

Three top prizes of $125,000 remain in the ($5) $125,000 Big Money game. The odds of winning are 1 in 480,000.
