COLUMBIA, SC (August 30, 2010) – When the telephone rang for Charlie Jackson at work last week, he wondered who would be calling him on his lunch break? It was the Lottery. An entry Jackson had submitted just won $1 MILLION in the Cash Bonanza Bonus Second-Chance Promotion.

“It is a dream come true,” said Jackson. “I can’t believe it has happened to me.”

Neither his co-workers nor his wife trusted the news. His buddies thought he was pulling their leg. His wife told him she just wasn’t going to believe him.

So Jackson decided to drive to Columbia to claim his prize and afterwards surprise his wife with the check. His plans are to invest a portion of the winnings and fix-up his house.

The Cash Bonanza Bonus Second-Chance Promotion awarded 106 prizes: one (1) $1 million prize, five (5) $50,000 prizes, and one hundred (100) $1,000 prizes. Players entered non-winning Cash Bonanza Bonus instant tickets online or by mail for a chance to win. For more information, visit sceducationlottery.com.
