COLUMBIA, SC (August 5, 2010) – A $5 lottery purchase put a Greenville player on the fast track to fun when she won a 2010 Chevrolet® Camaro®!
The lucky lady, who wants to keep her name private, “started jumping up and down” when she realized her Camaro® ticket was a winner. “I only bought one Camaro® ticket. I couldn’t believe it when I saw ‘Win Car,” the 44-year-old said. The excited Camaro® owner chose a silver model 1SS™ at Woodruff Chevrolet in Woodruff and picked it up earlier this week. She told lottery staff the Camaro® is very fast!
The car is valued at approximately $53,000 including applicable federal and state tax withholdings. Two more Camaros® remain in the instant game along with one top prize of $100,000. More than $2.5 million in prizes are still available. The Camaro® game also offers a second chance to win a new car, a $100,000 prize or an officially-licensed Chevrolet® Camaro® prize pack.

The winning Camaro® ticket was purchased at Gasland USA #8 in Blacksburg. The store received a $530 retailer commission for selling the ticket. Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent commission, capped at $50,000.
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.
