COLUMBIA, SC (February 27, 2015) – A visit to Mom’s earned a Columbia man $125,000 and a pat on the back for winning the Lottery.

The self-described “Momma’s Boy” was spending quality time with his mother at her Beaufort home when the two decided to play the Lottery for fun. They each bought scratch-offs at the Tiger Express on Fairfield Rd. in Beaufort.

“I won $2,” Mom said.

But her son hit it big winning the top prize on a $5 Giant Jumbo Bucks instant ticket.

His plans for the $125,000 in prize money made Momma smile.

“I’m going to help Mom,” he said.

Three top prizes of $125,000 remain in the Giant Jumbo Bucks game. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 495,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Tiger Express in Beaufort received a commission of $1,250.
