COLUMBIA, SC (November 21, 2014) A Seneca mans symptoms of winning the Lottery included weak knees, perspiration, and an inability to concentrate.

I think Im about to have a heart attack, he warned customers inside the Countryside Exxon on Crossroads Dr. in Seneca.

He won a $200,000 prize.

Im a nervous wreck, his wife said yesterday when the couple arrived at the Lotterys Columbia Claims Center to deliver the winning Bring on the Bens scratch-off.

For her, the win means a chance at an early retirement. For her husband, he wont have to worry about their bills.

I feel great now, he said.

As of this release, four top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $10 Bring on the Bens game. The odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Countryside Exxon in Seneca received a $2,000 commission.
