A Little River man had trouble convincing his wife they were winners after a pink “Lady Luck” scratch-off ticket yielded a $250,000 prize on April Fool’s Day.
“I’m not going to believe it until I see the check,” she said.
She took a long, hard look at the winning ticket and still had her doubts because the pick scratch-off didn’t look like something her husband would buy, according to a news release from the S.C. Education Lottery. Lottery officials didn’t name the winner.
“I didn’t know if I should buy it,” he admitted. “A pink ticket for a guy, I don’t know.”

He cashed in the pink ticket this week, proving to his wife they really were winners, officials said.
“We’re going to Disney,” he said.
“Bermuda,” said his wife.
As of Friday morning, two top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 “Lady Luck” game, with odds of winning $250,000 at one in 696,000, officials said.
The Speedway store on S.C. 9 E. in Little River where the winner bought the ticket received a commission $2,500, according to the news release.
