Greenville Dad Shares Lottery Win with His Kids

COLUMBIA, SC (February 4, 2016) A Greenville dad is splitting his $250,000 lottery win with his children.

I want to help my kids, he explained.

The family man won the prize nearly a week ago off a ticket he purchased for $10 at the Stop N Go on E. North St. in Greenville, but the winner says he had a good reason for waiting to cash in the Maximum Money ticket.

I was in shock, he said. I had to let it sink in.

He says he spent plenty of time staring at the winning ticket and deciding what he would like to do with the cash.

I have no big plans for myself, he said.

Two top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Maximum Money game, at odds of 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Stop N Go in Greenville received a commission of $2,500.
