COLUMBIA, SC (October 24, 2014) – A Florence man’s losing lottery ticket brought a smile to his wife’s face.

“She used to get mad about it,” the husband said. “She told me I was wasting my money.”

But her attitude changed yesterday, when he called to say a worthless scratch-off he entered online in the Lottery’s new Instant Replay Second-Chance Promotion won them $20,000.

“She thought I was making it up,” the winner said laughing. “Now she’s counting the money.”

She’s also packing her bags.

“I’m taking the wife on a trip,” the husband said.

The Lottery notified him and four other cash prize winners yesterday. An additional 420 players won points redeemable for merchandise prizes. The Lottery’s next Instant Replay monthly drawing is planned for November 19. A $100,000 cash drawing is planned for September 2015.

The odds of winning a prize in the Instant Replay promotion depends on the number of entries received for each drawing.
