COLUMBIA, SC (September 30, 2008) – The South Carolina Education Lottery is poised to add to the excitement of the S.C. State Fair taking place October 8 – 19 in Columbia at the State Fairgrounds!
For every $10 lottery ticket purchase, players will spin the prize wheel filled with fun and unique goodies fairgoers won’t find anywhere else along the Midway! Landing on the “Big Wheel” spot will earn players a chance to win 25,000 airline miles, a Carnival® Caribbean cruise, an iPod® nano or merchandise prize package.
The complete lineup of lottery games will be available to purchase for players 18 years of age and older, including the newest instant games Deal or No Deal™, MONOPOLY™ and Spread the Wealth. Player favorites, MegaMatch 6SM, Palmetto Cash 5, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Powerball® will also be on sale during the fair.
Since its inception in 2002, the South Carolina Education Lottery has launched more than 280 instant games and six online games. Currently, SCEL offers 39 instant games and five online games. SCEL produces an average of four new games each month in a variety of themes, play styles, and price points of $1-$10. During the past six and a half years, the support the South Carolina Education Lottery has received from players and retailers is responsible for the General Assembly appropriating more than $2 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2009.
