Charleston teen's first lottery ticket nets $200K

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - A 19-year-old girl from Charleston is $200,000 richer after playing the lottery for the first time.

The teen said she stopped by the Sunfly Convenience Store on Durant Avenue in North Charleston to pick up a bag of chips and saw a man in line in front of her scratching a lottery ticket - so she said she gave it a shot.

When she won, the teen told lottery officials her first call was to her mother.

When asked about her winnings, the teen said she wants a new car, a manicure and pedicure, dinner with friends - and another lottery ticket.

"I'm going shopping," she said.

Lottery officials say there are three top prizes of $200,000 remain in the Money Maker game. The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 500,000.

The store that sold the ticket earned a commission of $2,000.
