This is an extremely heartwarming story. A grandmother from South Carolina recently won $300,000 in the lottery by using the ages of her grandchildren, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery. She reportedly bought the winning ticket from a local Circle K store and used the numbers 2, 4, 13, 16 and 21.
She scanned the ticket at a store a few weeks later, and the message stated "Claim at Lottery." The reward was worth several hundred times more than the $500 the merchant could provide her, but she didn't realise it until she handed in the ticket.
"The odds of winning $300,000 from a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket are 1 in 1,405,438," according to an article published by the South Carolina Education Lottery.
