First Try, Huger Man Wins $250,000 Lottery Prize

COLUMBIA, SC (July 19, 2016) – A Huger man bought his first lottery ticket and won $250,000.

“Something told me to go get a ticket,” he said. He told lottery officials he ran out on his lunch break to the Circle K on Rivers Ave. in North Charleston and picked out the winning VIP Cash Club ticket.

Stunned, he went back to work and didn’t say a word to anyone about his quarter-million-dollar win.

“But I was smiling the whole day,” he said.

Thoughts of a new house, a new car, an overdue vacation have that effect.

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

For selling the claimed ticket, Circle K #2723354 in North Charleston received a commission of $2,500.
