Aug. 31 (UPI) -- A South Carolina man won a $200,000 prize from a lottery drawing thanks to a special set of numbers that he copied down from a TV show.

The South Carolina Education Lottery said the winner, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket from the Piggly Wiggly store in Chesterfield and selected the numbers 1-10-16-17-18.


The man told officials he got the numbers from an unusual source: "I saw them on television."

The winner did not reveal what TV show gave him the lucky numbers, but they earned him a $200,000 top prize.

The Piggly Wiggly store that sold the winning ticket was awarded a $2,000 commission.
