COLUMBIA, SC (November 2, 2009) – When Thomas Glenn walked into his favorite lottery retailer on Halloween and bought a Winter Jackpot ticket, he got the biggest treat of his life. Glenn’s ticket was a $100,000 winner!
“I bought the Winter Jackpot ticket because it was one of the newer games, and I liked the bonus play areas,” said Glenn, a Rock Hill resident. “I scratched the ticket and just stared at the $100,000 prize. I asked the store clerk to scan it, and then I realized I was a big winner,” Glenn added.
The lucky player knows first hand how education wins with the South Carolina Education Lottery. His wife is in school with the help of a lottery-funded scholarship.
Glenn purchased his winning Winter Jackpot ticket at Quick C #106 in Rock Hill. The store received a 1 percent selling bonus of $1,000. Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent commission. 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.
