2/17/2016 12:45:14 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (February 17, 2016) – The first person a Columbia lottery winner called when he won a quarter-of-a-million dollars was his daddy.

The father and son are close, and this $250,000 win has brought them even closer.

“My dad, he took care of me,” said the winner. “And I want to pay him back.”

Those words made an already proud father smile.

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

For selling the claimed ticket, Gaz-Bah #003 in Columbia received a commission of $2,500.
