Columbia Redemption Center relocates

Columbia, SC: On Monday, July 22, 2002, South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) players will have a new place to redeem their lottery winnings. The Columbia Redemption Center is moving to 717 C Lady Street located in the Vista area of downtown. Since the start of the games, January 7, 2002, the redemption center has been located in the Bank of American Building on 1901 Main Street.

“This new office space will be more convenient for not only our staff, but most importantly, our players,” says Tony Cooper, SCEL Chief Operating Officer. “It will offer more parking for lottery players claiming their winnings.”

The new redemption center will be open for business Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:30pm. The phone number to the center is (803) 253-4004.

In its first six months, the SCEL has returned over $80 million dollars to the state of South Carolina for education. All SCEL profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include South Carolina’s HOPE, LIFE, Palmetto Fellows, National Guard scholarship programs; Lottery Tuition Assistance for 2 year programs within the state’s university system; a wide range of technical upgrades for state colleges and universities; school buses; local libraries and gambling addiction.
