North Charleston woman wins $100,000 in Cash 5 lottery

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A North Charleston woman is shocked that she has a $100,000 lottery ticket.

She told lottery officials she checked the April 29 Palmetto Cash 5 ticket several times after hearing the winning numbers 1-18-29-31-37. She matched all five numbers.

Lottery officials said even after she took the check for the winnings, she was still questioning it.

"Is this really happening?" she asked.

Had she played the power-up option for $1, her winnings would have increased to $500,000 and she would probably still be looking for the camera crews to jump out and tell her it was all a hoax.

The odds of winning the Palmetto Cash 5 $100,000 are 1 in 501,942.
