South Carolina Education Lottery officials say the winning ticket was purchased at 38 Pitt Stop on Longs Pond Road in Lexington County.

“It was an absolute godsend,” the mother said.

The ticket for the Money Mania Extra Play game featured the $300,000 jackpot, a one-in-a-million chance of winning jackpot.
