Las Vegas, NV: This weekend, South Carolinians can watch Lera Tolbert, the latest South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) player to vie for a million dollars on the Powerball Instant Millionaire Game Show.

“I was very pleased,” said Tolbert when she learned of her trip to Las Vegas. “Being on the show is the best part of my trip.” Tolbert is from Greenville, South Carolina. She flew to Las Vegas back in June of this year for the taping of the game show.

Since January 2002, the SCEL has transferred more than $303 million to the State Education Lottery Account for distribution according to South Carolina Legislation. The SCEL’s net proceeds pay for specific educational programs, including South Carolina’s HOPE, LIFE and Palmetto Fellows Scholarships; the National Guard Scholarship Program; Lottery Tuition Assistance for two-year programs within the state’s university system; a wide range of technical upgrades for state colleges and universities; school buses; local libraries and gambling addiction services.
