COLUMBIA, SC (November 10, 2011) – With his family out of town for the weekend, a Myrtle Beach man had the house to himself. He wasn’t lonely. A lottery ticket worth $200,000 kept him company.

He stumbled upon the prize goofing off at the Scotchman #224 in Myrtle Beach.

The $10 Triple Wild Winner ticket had his heart racing.

“I didn’t think I was going to make it home,” he confessed.

The retired auto mechanic has decided life’s short.

He told his wife, “We’re going to blow a little of the money.”

As of this release, four top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Triple Wild Winner game.

The odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 500,000.

Scotchman #224 received a commission of $2,000 for selling the claimed ticket.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than 932,000 college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $2.5 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
