A Blythewood,South Carolina, man’s day started with a $100 lottery win and things only got better from there.

On his way home from work, he stopped to cash in his $100 winning ticket and ending up buying another ticket: but this one turned out to be worth $200,000.

I thought I was having a heart attack, said the winner when the first number he scratched revealed a $200,000 prize.

I was going to surprise my wife by putting the ticket under her pillow, but I couldn’t wait to tell her, he said.

They decided the kids didn’t need to know about the money.

The couple is paying off their mortgage.

This is such a blessing, the winner said.
