March 9 (UPI) -- A South Carolina woman said she owes her $250,000 lottery jackpot to a feeling that caused her to go back inside a store after finishing her shopping.

The winner told South Carolina Education Lottery officials she was leaving The Spinx Company in Greenville when she felt compelled to go back inside the store and buy a $250,000 Extra Play scratch-off ticket.

The lottery said the woman's "sixth sense" earned her a $250,000 grand prize.

"She called me hollering," the woman's husband said.

The winner said she has plans for her jackpot.

"I want to fix up the house," she said.
