COLUMBIA, SC (December 17, 2015) – A Greer man says he was lucky way before winning $250,000 in the Lottery.

“I feel lucky every day,” he said. “I have a wonderful wife and kids that I’m proud of.”

But the family man got luckier this week on a $10 Topaz 10s scratch-off from the Hot Spot on E. Poinsett St. in Greer. The ticket won him enough to cover the cost of college tuition for his kids and then some.

“I still don’t believe it,” he said. “I keep wondering if this is real.”

Three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Topaz 10s game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Hot Spot #6002 in Greer received a commission of $2,500.
