Lucky Lottery ticket sold in Piedmont – $300,000


Someone in the Piedmont area was struck by $300,000 worth of lightning Sunday; and if they turn in the ticket in time, they are going to love it. A winning Pick 5 lottery ticket was sold at a Piedmont convenience store Sunday. The ticket, which contained the numbers 7-8-18-20-27, would have been worth a hundred thousand dollars, except that the buyer spent an additional dollar to qualify for the power up multiplier feature. The multiplier in this case was three, tripling the value of the ticket. The location was the Stop-A-Minit store number 7, located at 1 S. Piedmont Hwy. The buyer has one hundred and eighty days to redeem the ticket.
