PUNTERS cannot believe a woman who won £240,000 on the lottery has not spent any of her winnings a month after she struck gold.
The woman from Lexington, South Carolina, scratched her way to the high life in the Ultimate Riches game in November.
The woman bought a scratch-and-win card and instantly won £240,000
The US woman still has not spent a cent of her winnings
South Carolina Education Lottery officials said the woman won the cash on a $10 (£8) scratch-and-win ticket purchased from a Circle K store in Lexington.
Weeks later, the US woman said she still hasn’t spent a cent of her winnings.
She said: “I’m still in shock.”
The lucky winner said she carried on living a normal life since being minted.
She said: “Well I guess you could say, almost normal.
“I am having a lot of dreams of ways to spend it.”
The winner overcame odds of one in 900,000 to win £240,000 in the Ultimate Riches game.
Three more top prizes remain on the ticket.
The Lexington Circle K Store received a commission of £2,434 for selling the claimed ticket.
South Carolina Lottery posted the news on Instagram, with social media users sharing their excitement.
“Congratulations, I hope I am next,” one said.
