COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – A Rock Hill woman left the Grand Strand as a winner, after buying the $250,000 Gold Rush scratch-off ticket.

Lottery officials say so far this month, three Myrtle Beach retailers have sold top prize winning tickets totaling $475,000.

“It still feels too good to be true,” the winner said.

She was on her way home from the beach when she stopped at the Circle K on S. Kings Highway and bought the winning Gold Rush scratch-off, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery press release.

The top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Gold Rush game at odds of 1 in 660,000.

Two other Myrtle Beach residents also hit the jackpot after purchasing Cash Funds and Double Jackpots scratch-offs.
