COLUMBIA, SC (November 22, 2010) – A South Carolina school bus driver has claimed a Millionaire Raffle ticket worth $100,000 sold in Greenville.

The students on her bus route may be the first to suspect something wonderful has happened. “I’ll be wearing a big smile at work today,” she shared. “I can’t stop smiling.”

The Landrum resident did not want to release her name but told lottery officials she was getting more excited by the minute.

“I don’t know how to feel,” she confessed. “I never win anything. I don’t know that this has hit me yet.”

The winner plans to help others, first her children with their college expenses and then local charities.

The winner of a $1 million winning raffle ticket (#00165290) sold at Kangaroo Express #912 in Ridgeland still has not come forward. A complete list of winning Millionaire Raffle numbers is available on the Lottery’s website at sceducationlottery.com.

The Spinx Company, Inc. in Greenville received $1,000 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.
