I won £240,000 lottery jackpot weeks ago but everyone is shocked by my reaction to my win | The Sun

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.


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.
