Their ticket matched all five numbers drawn on February 4th: 23 - 26 - 31 - 35 - 38.

They spent the extra $1 for Power-Up so their $100,000 winnings were doubled to $200,000 when a “2” multiplier was selected.

Lottery officials say the odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.

Gate Petroleum Co. in Camden received a commission of $2,000 for selling the ticket.
