COLUMBIA, SC (February 12, 2010) – A group of friends celebrating Super Bowl Sunday in Myrtle Beach now have thousands of more reasons to party. They are sharing a $100,000 prize on a $5 More Money instant ticket from the South Carolina Education Lottery.
“We all pitched in to buy some tickets,” said John Pampani, of Conway. “We won some money on those tickets, so we bought a few more. And then, we actually won again. We bought just a couple of more tickets, and one of those was the big winner,” Pampani laughed.
He and his brother, Phil, along with pals Joshua Wesnesky, Scott Gallimore and Chris Saxon each received $20,000 before taxes.
Food Lion #916 in Conway is the retailer that sold the lucky More Money ticket. The store received a 1 percent sales incentive. Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent commission. The sales incentive is capped at $50,000.
