COLUMBIA, SC (October 3, 2013) – Customers at Country C’s on McConnells Hwy. in Rock Hill want clerk Amanda Bryson handpicking their lottery tickets.

“They think I’m lucky,” she said.

Why wouldn’t they as the store clerk picked herself out a $200,000 winning ticket a while back?

“I almost threw it away,” she confessed.

Before tossing it in the trash, she says something told her to stop and scan the ticket she purchased to be sure. When the message read “claim at lottery,” she took a closer look at the $10 Lucky Loot scratch-off.

“I was jumping up and down, excited and nervous all at the same time,” she said after absorbing the six-figure win.

The Rock Hill winner is buying a new car and a starter home.

Country C’s lottery players are hoping Bryson’s lucky touch will deliver them a similar result.

“I want to pass the blessing along,” she shared.

As of this release, five top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Lucky Loot game. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 300,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, County C’s in Rock Hill received a commission of $2,000.

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.
