COLUMBIA, SC (July 6, 2011) – The Lottery couldn’t have scripted a better reaction. When a Ladson man showed his wife his winning lottery ticket, she screamed flailing her arms and the ticket about. He followed with a manly fist pump and yell.

The screams continued.

A $100,000 winning Money Machine scratch-off ticket sparked the celebration.

The couple is predicting a repeat performance when they pay off their cars and credit cards.

“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood,” said the husband accepting the check.

As of this release, four top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 Money Machine game.

The odds of winning $100,000 are 1 in 384,000.

Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent retailer commission, capped at $50,000. Li’l Cricket #884 in Ladson received $1,000.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than 920,000 college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $2.5 BILLION has been appropriated to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
