Pawleys Island man says lottery win saves home

Jan 14, 2011 6:40:00 AM - thestate.com
A Pawleys Island says winning $200,000 in the South Carolina Education Lottery has saved his home.

John Davis says he went to a hearing on Monday about the possibility of losing his home to foreclosure.

Tuesday he let the computer pick his numbers for the Palmetto Cash 5 drawing at a gasoline station in Surfside Beach, adding a dollar to increase his winnings in case he got a winning ticket.

Wednesday, Davis discovered he had won.

The single father of two girls says he's had a tough year, financially. Davis says he had just $6 in his bank account when he won. He works at a car dealership and says he plays the lottery almost every day.
