After playing the same set of numbers for years, a Chester couple bagged the biggest prize ever in the South Carolina Mega Millions lottery. They were in shopping at a grocery when the girlfriend began screaming “You won.”
The boyfriend and girlfriend have requested not to be named, but said they hardly slept after learning of their $5 million win, which will be reduced to a still hefty sum of $3.4 million after the taxman takes his cut. They bought their ticket from the Kangaroo Express at 1801 JA Cochran Bypass. The store earned a bonus of $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.
