A South Carolina man who always uses the same lottery numbers finally won a big prize thanks to his method.
The player, who is from North Myrtle Beach, North Carolina, won $200,000 playing a series of numbers he always uses, though he noted that those numbers don’t have any special meaning. He said he only wears it because he’s always loved it.
The lucky numbers he always uses are: 4, 11, 20, 24, 26 and 2.
“I won’t give them up (the numbers) now,” the winner told the lottery officials who presented him with his prize, according to ABC 4.
July 16 was his lucky day when he checked out a Palmetto Cash 5 Power-Up lottery ticket he bought at Food Lion #1047 at 1000 Highway 17 North.
The morning after the drawing, the man checked his ticket again and gave it one last look before leaving for Colombia to collect his award.
“I will keep playing my numbers,” he said, confident he can beat odds of 1 out of 878,399 to win again..
For the ticket sale, Food Lion Store #1047, located in North Myrtle Beach, received a commission of $2,000.
