COLUMBIA, SC (November 3, 2009) – Cassandra Ramsey had trouble believing she held a $100,000 winning ticket in her hands. “I was shocked,” she said when the Bags of Cash instant ticket she bought revealed a $100,000 top prize.
“This means a new life has started for my child. I can also share with my family and church,” the Gaffney mom said.
Ramsey purchased her lucky ticket at Gene’s One Stop in Jonesville. The retailer 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.
Bags of Cash is a $10 ticket with an estimated $9.7 million in total prizes remaining, including six top prizes of $100,000.
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.
