FLORENCE MAN WINS $100,000 INSTANTLY!

COLUMBIA, SC (December 12, 2008) – An impulse to buy a lottery ticket led a Florence man to win a $100,000 prize!
Brad Fyle stopped by Markette Store #17 in Florence on Thursday evening to fill up his car with gas. While at the retailer, he asked for a $5 instant lottery ticket.
“I asked the clerk to pick a ticket for me, and she handed me a $100,000 Super Cash ticket. I scratched it and stared at the numbers. I really didn’t think I had won $100,000, but the clerk scanned it and said I was a big winner,” Fyle said with a huge grin on his face.
The 22-year-old player says he has a few ideas on what he’ll buy with his winnings, including plans to spoil his 4–year-old son a little more.
Since the Lottery’s inception in 2002, the General Assembly has appropriated more than $2 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2009. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2008, more than 97 cents of every dollar spent by players on the South Carolina Education Lottery is returned to the state in the form of contributions to education, prizes, retailer commissions, and payment to contractors for goods and services.
