COLUMBIA, SC (August 3, 2017) – A Bennettsville man says he was feeling blessed when he purchased a lottery ticket and won $125,000.

He was coming from a funeral when he stopped at the One Stop on Hwy. 38 S. in Bennettsville and spent $5 on a scratch-off that won him the game’s top prize.

“This will make life easier,” he said.

Now that the prize is paid, One Stop in Bennettsville receives a $1,250 commission.

Two top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Red Hot Cash game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.
