COLUMBIA, SC (September 28, 2009) – The reality of winning a huge prize finally sank in for Michelle and Omar Bueso when they claimed their $100,000 top prize from a lucky Stacks of Cash instant ticket.
“I scratched the ticket and saw the $100,000 on it, but I just couldn’t believe it,” Mrs. Bueso said. “Only when we got the check at the Claims Center did it seem real,” she laughed.
The couple has a few ideas for using their prize but do plan on saving most of it.
The Buesos bought the $5 Stacks of Cash instant ticket at Neighbors LLC in Bluffton. A retailer who sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more receives a 1 percent selling bonus. Neighbors LLC, located at 4372 Bluffton Parkway in Bluffton, received $1,000. The selling bonus is capped at $50,000.
Since the Lottery’s inception in 2002, the General Assembly has appropriated more than $2.2 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2010. Approximately 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.
