COLUMBIA, SC (August 28, 2013) – In the tiny town of Eutawville lives a two-time South Carolina Education Lottery winner.
Three years ago the winner, who did not want to be identified, won $200,000 and last week reappeared with a $100,000 winning ticket.
“I must have an angel watching over me,” the winner confessed.
When asked which of the two wins was the sweetest, the winner admits they both were.
As of this release, two top prizes of $100,000 remain in the $5 “7” game. The odds of winning the top prize were 1 in 400,000.
For selling the claimed ticket, Quick Pantry #6 in Orangeburg received a commission of $1,000.
Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than one million college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $3.1 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
