A person who bought a ticket at a gas station in the Palmetto State won the $211,000 top prize, South Carolina Education Lottery officials said in a news release.

The person who purchased a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket in Aiken County before Thursday’s drawing should check their number because they won the game’s six-figure grand prize, according to the release.

Now the search is on for the winner.

What turned out to be the winning Palmetto Cash 5 ticket was sold at the Ye Olde Grocery at 4444 Jefferson Davis Highway, officials said. The gas station/convenience store is located in the Beech Island area.

The winning numbers from Thursday’s draw were 1, 2, 7, 25, 29.

The Palmetto Cash 5 ticket matched all five numbers drawn to win the game’s top prize, officials said.

According to lottery officials, the winner has 180 days to claim the prize.

The winner is allowed to retain some privacy, as South Carolina is one of 11 states – along with Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Texas and Virginia – where lottery winners can remain anonymous. .

“Sign the back of your ticket and keep it in a safe place until you are ready to come forward to claim the prize,” lottery officials said.

The jackpot rolled 10 times before Thursday’s win, officials said. It has been rolled twice since then and the top prize in Sunday’s drawing will be $120,000, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery.

It costs $2 to purchase a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket, and the drawings are held daily at 6:59 p.m., officials said.
