He was on his way to get a haircut when he unfortunately ran out of gas. This day was not going well.
The man from Abbeville, South Carolina, then found himself having to walk all of the rest of the way into town.
On route he bought a ‘Cash Blowout’ scratch off lottery ticket from Rosenberg’s Spirits in Abbeville.
But was shocked to find his bad day had taken a fantastic turn for the better. His ill fated haircut trip had just won him the top prize of $200,000.
The Abbeville man, who remains anonymous, says he plans to use the winnings as a down payment to buy a farm.
The odds of winning the $200,000 top prize with South Carolina’s ‘Cash Blowout’ game are 1 in 440,000. Two big prizes still remain.
