COLUMBIA, SC (May 23, 2013) – A Sumter woman called her sister, husband and then her son with news she won $100,000 in the South Carolina Education Lottery. The family phone tree lit up from there.

“Everyone started calling to congratulate me,” she said.

Her husband would have preferred to keep the win a secret, but it’s too late.

“Honey, would you like a little walking around money?” she asked him. “I’m going to get a new car.”

As of this release, five top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 King’s Ransom game. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 400,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Munn E. Saver in Sumter received a commission of $1,000.

To date, lottery play has resulted in more than $3 BILLION transferred to support education.
