COLUMBIA, SC (January 22, 2016) – A Simpsonville man can ride off into the sunset with his two lottery wins.

In 2012 he won a car playing the Lottery, and this week he drove that car to Columbia to cash in a Carolina Green scratch-off worth $250,000.

“The car has been great,” he said, but admits the cash is sweeter.

“Maybe I can retire early,” he said.

Three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the Carolina Green game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Save-Way #206 in Simpsonville received a commission of $2,500.
