COLUMBIA, SC (June 25, 2014) A Lexington lottery winner won enough to buy a new car and help his church this week.

His $100,000 win came on a Big Winning Numbers scratch-off from Mr. Bs II on Columbia Ave. in Leesville.

The big spender says he always buys $1 tickets, but had an extra five bucks and decided to mix things up and play a $5 ticket.

It was a blessing, the winner said.

As of this release, one top prize of $100,000 remains in the Big Winning Numbers game. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, E-Z Shop #22 in St. Matthews received a commission of $1,000.
