COLUMBIA, SC (June 24, 2014) Ė In less than a month, two South Carolina Education Lottery retailers on Pleasantburg Dr. in Greenville sold tickets worth $250,000 to locals.

Both winners won playing the The Big $10 Ticket, a scratch-off introduced June 3.

The drive from EDís GT Express Mart 7 to Bi-Lo #5563, the two winning retailers, takes less than 15 minutes.

EDís GT Express Mart 7 at 2560 N. Pleasantbrug Dr. was the first lucky spot earlier in the month. A Greenville father and son split the $250,000 prize money.

Yesterday, a Greenville woman turned in the second winning ticket purchased while grocery shopping at the Bi-Lo #5563 at 1315 S. Pleasantburg Dr.

As of this release, three top prizes of $250,000 remain in The Big $10 Ticket game.

The odds of winning $250,000 are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed tickets, EDís GT Express Mart 7 and Bi-Lo #5563 received commissions of $2,500.
