Four days after winning the lottery, a Bluffton couple stopped to collect their $200,000 prize, according to a news release Wednesday from the S.C. Lottery.
The pair bought the Extreme Green ticket while shopping at the Piggly Wiggly on Burnt Church Road in Bluffton. They realized they won while in the store's parking lot, but they didn't let the win alter their routine, the release said. The couple went home and to work the next day and on following days.
"Even if I won the big one for multi-millions, I would still work," the wife said in the release. The couple chose to remain anonymous.
She declined to share specific plans for the money, except to say, "My husband has spent it all in his head."
For selling the claimed ticket, Piggly Wiggly in Bluffton received a commission of $2,000, according to the release.
