COLUMBIA, SC (May 9, 2017) – A Honea Path lottery winner doesn’t mind going to work anymore.

A $125,000 lottery win has him a step closer to retirement.

The winner, who did not wish to be identified, is investing his winnings off a $5 Queen of Green scratch-off to enjoy when retirement rolls around.

“I’ll be back at work tomorrow,” he said with a smile.

Busy Corner #4 in Walterboro sold the winning ticket. Now that the prize is paid, the store receives a $1,250 commission.

Two top prizes of $125,000 remain in the Queen of Green game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
