COLUMBIA, SC (June 22, 2015) – A Gaffney man won $20,000 last week, marking his second five-figure lottery win.

On Thursday the Lottery called him at home to congratulate him on winning cash in this month’s Instant Replay Drawing. A non-winning ticket he’d entered online won the $20,000.

He says his mouth dropped open and he had to sit down on hearing the wonderful news.

While waiting on his check, he told lottery officials that few years back he won $70,000 on a scratch-off and bought his daughters a house. He’s sharing the recent win with his wife.

“And my wife says we are enjoying it,” the winner said.

Four other players won cash prizes and an additional 420 players won points redeemable for merchandise in the June 17 drawing. The Lottery’s next Instant Replay drawing is planned for July 22. 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.
