COLUMBIA, SC (August 19, 2016) – Getting through the work day is easier when you have a $250,000 winning lottery ticket waiting for you at home.

A Hardeeville man won the prize on a Cash Reserve scratch-off ticket he purchased at the Enmark Station #851 on the Bluffton Pkwy. in Bluffton. He waited for a day off from work to cash in his winnings.

“At work, I tried to act like it didn’t happen,” he said.

But that proved impossible. He says he was caught daydreaming about a new car and the possibility of a new home.

His mom was doing a little daydreaming of her own.

“I showed her the ticket first,” he said.

And she went right out and bought her own lottery ticket, winning $100.

“My wife’s scratched a few tickets since our son won,” confessed the winner’s dad.

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

For selling the claimed ticket, Enmark Station #851 in Bluffton received a commission of $2,500.
