COLUMBIA, SC (May 25, 2016) – What does a fellow in Ware Shoals do when he wins a quarter-of-a-million dollars playing the South Carolina Education Lottery?

He sits back and enjoys it. But he doesn’t tell anyone.

“I’m going to take it easy,” the winner, a regular lottery player at the Power Trac 2 on N. Greenwood Ave. Ext. in Ware Shoals, said.

He was in the store late last week when he tried his luck on a $10 Cash King scratch-off, and won $250,000. It’s the store’s largest win to date.

And this small town winner doesn’t want his life to change one bit, so he’s keeping the win a secret.

As of this release, three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Cash King game. The odds of winning $250,000 are 1 in 696,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Power Trac 2 in Ware Shoals received a commission of $2,500.
