Christmas Comes Early for Florence Man
11/18/2010 9:44:14 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (November 17, 2010) Bobby Jones, of Florence, is probably out shopping for a 50-inch, flat screen television. When he claimed a $200,000 prize from a Greetings of Green instant ticket yesterday, he let slip one sure would look nice hanging in his man cave.

I spend a lot of time in my garage, Jones shared. I like to have friends over and we karaoke, listen to music and have a good time.

Jones and his friends certainly have reason to celebrate. After scratching the winning ticket inside Petro Stop in Florence, Jones was admittedly emotional.

I got nervous and teared up, Jones confessed.

Jones, 65, is retired from the Department of Defense. If I tell you what I did for a living, Id have to kill you, he joked with lottery officials. Im usually a calm guy, but when I realized I won $200,000, I wasnt.

Greetings of Green is a $10, holiday instant game. As of this release, five top prizes of $200,000 remain in the game. For complete information, visit sceducationlottery.com.

Petro Stop received $2,000 for selling the winning ticket. Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent retailer commission, capped at $50,000.
