There’s a “Lotto” Luck in Anderson
9/27/2016 1:18:37 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (September 27, 2016) – Thinking of buying a lottery ticket? Anderson is a lucky place to start.

Since Friday, three convenience stores in Anderson have sold top prize winning tickets worth $250,000 each.

The winning locations are the One Stop Food Mart on Jackson St., the Stop-A-Minit #20 on the Hwy. 28 Bypass and the QuikTrip #1106 on Liberty Hwy.

Friday’s winner bought his Royal Cash ticket at the One Stop Food Mart and deposited his $250,000 prize into a college fund for his two sons.

“Their education comes first,” he said. “Maybe I’ll take a vacation.”

Monday’s winner did.

He took the day off to enjoy his win on a Cash Reserve scratch-off. He bought the winning ticket at the Stop-A-Minit #20 on his way to work.

This morning’s winner is going in late to work. He says the fish weren’t biting on the lake last night, but he hooked a $250,000 win on his way home at the QuikTrip #1106.

“I caught three fish,” he said. “Then my life changed while I was pumping gas.”

He cashed in a $250,000 win on Franklin’s Fortune.

For selling the claimed tickets, each Anderson store received a commission of $2,500.

There are still $250,000 prizes remaining in these $10 games.

As of this release, four top prizes remain in the Royal Cash game at odds of 1 in 660,000. Cash Reserve has one top prize left and Franklin’s Fortune has three prizes remaining, both at odds of 1 in 696,000.
