Missing Carolina 5 winners

Columbia, SC: Where are the missing Carolina 5 winners? The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) continues to search for the missing winner from the August 30, 2002 draw and the winner from the most recent drawing on September 13, 2002.

Over the past four weeks, fifteen people correctly matched all 5 numbers. Only thirteen have come forward to receive their checks. Two have yet to claim their prize.

The people holding the tickets have 180 days after the date of their respective drawings to claim their prize.

The first missing ticket was bought at Riverview Grocery #1 at 1025 Pole Branch Rd. in Lake Wylie. The second missing ticket was purchased from the E-Z Shop at 2083 St. Matthews Rd. in Orangeburg.

Since January 2002, the SCEL has returned over $100 million dollars to the State of South Carolina’s Lottery Education Fund. All of SCEL’s net proceeds go to pay for specific educational programs, including South Carolina’s HOPE, LIFE, Palmetto Fellows, National Guard and 2 year institution’s scholarship programs.
