‘There’s a lucky cloud over us’: Customers at Myrtle Beach convenience store hit on big lotto wins
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach convenience store had its second big lottery win during the month of June.
After selling a $2 million earlier this month, Coastal Petro on Burcale Road sold a $30,000 winning ticket last week to a local man, according to information from the South Carolina Education Lottery.
“It’s good news,” Harry Patel, owner of Coastal Petro, said. “For a long time, we haven’t had a top prize win at the store, and now we have two. There’s a lucky cloud over us.”
According to the recent winner, his friend wanted to stop at the convenience store and he asked her to cash in a couple of winning tickets for small amounts and pick out a couple more.
One of those $2 tickets would win him $30,000. According to lottery officials, he’s already spent some of the prize money.
“I tipped my friend,” he said.
