COLUMBIA, SC (April 13, 2015) A Greer man is a two-time lottery winner.

In less than a year, hes won a combined $300,000 playing the South Carolina Education Lottery.

I consider myself pretty lucky, he said having won $100,000 in July and $200,000 this month.

And even though his initial win was for less, he says it was the sweetest.

I was more surprised by the first one, he explained.

He was calm winning $200,000 on a $10 Cash Club scratch-off purchased from The Spinx Company #126 on Old Spartanburg Rd. in Greer.

I didnt fall down, he joked.

His wife asked if he was through playing having hit two big ones.

No, was his response. If it happened once, it can happen again, and again.

The Greer winner claimed the last top prize of $200,000 in the Cash Club game. Odds of winning $200,000 are 1 in 600,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, The Spinx Company #126 in Greer received a commission of $2,000.
