11/5/2002

Columbia, SC: The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) kicks off its Holiday season with four new instant tickets: Holiday Treasures, Stocking Stuffer, Holiday Jackpot, and Bingo. Tickets went on sale in over 3500 lottery retailers statewide on November 4, 2002.

Holiday Treasures is this month’s newest $1 dollar game. Players can win up to $2,000 dollars by matching three “bells” in a row, column or diagonal like the game tic-tac-toe. This ticket features four different holiday scenes. The overall odds of winning are 1 in 4.87.

Stocking Stuffer is this month’s latest $2 dollar ticket. This brightly colored ticket is sure to be a favorite because of the fun and unique “stocking” shape. Stocking Stuffer also makes a great gift because it contains a punch-out that will allow players to hang it from a Christmas tree or tie onto a present! Players can win up to $25,000 by matching their numbers to the winning numbers. The overall odds of winning are 1 in 3.89.

$100,000 Holiday Jackpot is the SCEL’s first $5 dollar ticket. This game offers a top prize of $100,000 and gives players the chance to win up to 12 times on one card! In Game one on this ticket, match any of your numbers to the winning numbers, and you win! In Game two, get three snowflake symbols in any row, column or diagonal, and win the prizes show. And in Game three, if you match any of Your symbols to the Lucky Symbol, you win the prize that is shown. If the “Gift” symbol is found in the Bonus box, you’ve won $100 dollars instantly! The overall odds are 1 in 3.31.

The introduction of Classic Bingo offers SCEL players a new style of ticket. This is also the SCEL’s first $3 dollar ticket. The bright yellow ticket plays exactly like traditional bingo. It’s possible to win up to four times on a single ticket! Players have the chance to win up to $30,000. The overall odds are 1 in 4.09

Since January 2002, the SCEL has returned over $112 million dollars to the State of South Carolina’s Lottery Education Fund.
