Hartsville Woman is March’s $20,000 Instant Replay Winner

COLUMBIA, SC (March 25, 2015) – A Hartsville woman’s in the market for a new home after winning a $20,000 down payment in the Lottery last week.

She won the cash off a non-winning lottery ticket. How? Instead of throwing away losing $1 and $2 scratch-offs, she entered hers online in the Lottery’s monthly Instant Replay Second-Chance Promotion for a chance to win cash and points for merchandise, and she’s won both.

She won the $20,000 grand prize this month, but before that won points she’s redeemed for a smoker cooker grill and a coffee pot.

“I’m not going to believe this one until I have the check in my hand,” she said.

Four other players won cash prizes and an additional 420 players won points redeemable for merchandise in the March 18 drawing. The Lottery’s next Instant Replay drawing is planned for April 22. A $100,000 cash drawing is planned for September 2015.

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