Unclaimed prizes are transferred to the Education Lottery Account for appropriation by the General Assembly to support educational initiatives in South Carolina.
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.
