A TV show helped a man win $200,000 in lottery

A South Carolina man was able to win $200,000 in a lottery draw thanks to a set of numbers he had seen on TV.

According to the South Carolina Education Lottery, the winner purchased a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket from the Piggly Wiggly in Chesterfield. He selected the numbers 1-10-16-17-18.

Officials were told that the man got the numbers from an unusual source.

“I saw them on TV.”

Although the winner didn’t reveal which TV station gave him the lucky numbers on his television, they were enough to win him a $200,000 top prize.

A $2,000 commission was paid to the Piggly Wiggly shop that sold the winning ticket.
