COLUMBIA, SC (July 17, 2017) A Georgia man pulled up to the toll booth at the Cross Island Parkway leaving Hilton Head Island with a smile on his face and a winning lottery ticket worth $125,000 in his hand.

I didnt have my money ready to pay the toll, he laughed. I was so surprised I just won the Lottery.

The winner says he was in Hilton Head on business when he bought a South Carolina Education Lottery scratch-off at the Kangaroo Express #1650 on Lagoon St.

Ill be back to Hilton Head, he promised.

Now that the prize is paid, Kangaroo Express #1650 on Hilton Head Island receives a $1,250 commission.

One top prize of $125,000 remains in the $5 Lucky Loot game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
