A South Carolina man won the lottery and it’s all because he had to go to the bathroom. I wish I could win 200K while going to the bathroom. Many of us perform small tasks during bathroom breaks. A guy I once knew would do his taxes while sitting on the golden throne. Well, a South Carolina man decided to put his luck to the test while going to the bathroom.
The man decided to buy a lottery ticket at a gas station while he was taking a bathroom break. During his time there, he first tried his luck on scratch-offs and won $20. When he went back inside to collect his prize, he bought another ticket worth $200,000, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery.
According to The State, “My heart dropped,” the man said, recalling the moment he checked his latest winning ticket. “I jumped out of the car and threw the ticket on the store counter and asked them to scan it to be sure.” As a result of winning the real prize, the winner admitted to having trouble sleeping that night. I feel you with that. The State reported that the man was shaking when he claimed his prize. The man took home a total of $138,000 after taxes according to lottery spokesperson Holli Armstrong told McClatchy News in an email.
