COLUMBIA, SC (April 4, 2018) – A Mullins’ man planned to do yard work yesterday. But his plans changed when he won the Lottery.

He scratched off a $500 win, played again and won $250,000.

“I’m still shaking,” he said when he handed over the winning Fantastic 10s ticket to lottery officials in Columbia.

And now he’s planning his wedding.

“I’m going to spoil my fiancée,” he said.

Four top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Fantastic 10s game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, 5 Star Food Mart #2 in Mullins received a commission of $2,500.
