COLUMBIA, SC (April 6, 2018) – A Bennettsville man has a smile on his face and a song in his heart after winning the South Carolina Education Lottery this week.

“I feel fantastic,” he said.

He couldn’t believe his good fortune when a scratch-off he purchased at the Corner Cupboard #4 on the 401 Bypass in Bennettsville won him $125,000.

“He’s been walking around the house singing,” his wife said.

And he hasn’t been able to sit still either.

He says he laid the winning Money Clip ticket on the table next to his recliner. Every time he sits down time and starts to nod off, he wakes back up to look at the ticket again.

“I haven’t slept much,” he said. “But, I’m happy.”

Two top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Money Clip game, at odds of 1 in 480,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Corner Cupboard #4 in Bennettsville received a commission of $1,500.
