COLUMBIA, SC (November 20, 2015) – If you bought a Lucky for Life ticket at the BP on Main at 3206 Main St. in Newberry, you should check your ticket! In last night’s drawing, a lottery player from that store won South Carolina’s first $1,000 a day for LIFE prize.

The winning numbers were 7, 14, 21, 32, and 33. The Lucky Ball was 14.

“We made history today,” said Paula Harper Bethea, Executive Director of the SC Education Lottery, on its first $1,000 a day for life win. “South Carolina has waited almost a year for this moment, and we are thrilled for the winner, the retailer that sold the ticket and for the state of South Carolina.”

The Lottery’s message to the winner: sign the back of the ticket first, keep the ticket in a safe location and speak with a trusted advisor about this prize.

The winner has a decision to make. They can take a one-time cash payout of $5.75 million or choose an annuity payment of $1,000 a day for LIFE. The annuity prize is guaranteed for the winner’s natural life or a minimum of 20 years.

Once the winner is paid, the BP on Main in Newberry will receive a $50,000 commission.

The state of South Carolina has won from proceeds earned off strong Lucky for Life sales and taxes paid on winnings.

This week the Lucky for Life game celebrated 1 million South Carolina winners and this winning ticket overcame odds of 1 in 31 million to bring home a $1,000 a day for LIFE top prize win.
