Jun. 8—A $2 lottery ticket resulted in a $30,000 win by an Aiken lottery participant June 8.

The winner was completely shocked, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery.

"My eyes and mouth flew open," she said.

The winner only buys $2 tickets and purchased the winning 7-11-21 LIVE ticket at Circle K Store No. 5351 on East Pine Long Road in Aiken. The store received a commission of $300 for selling the claimed ticket.

The winner plans to save her winnings after overcoming odds of 1 in 480,000 to receive the second top prize.

"I'd like to win me another one," she said.

Three more top prizes remain in the lottery game.
