3/17/2004

Columbia, SC: One Greenwood lottery retailer is jumping for joy! The South Point Exxon #4 located at 2550 Highway 25 South in Greenwood sold a winning Cash Bonanza ticket worth $250,000!
The store will receive a $2,500 selling bonus from the SCEL for selling the ticket. The SCEL offers a 1% Selling Bonus for any redeemed winning ticket worth $10,000 or more. Selling Bonuses are capped at $50,000.

“I’m so excited,” said Bobbie McDowell, store manager. “I hope this will bring more lottery customers into the store.”

Cash Bonanza is the SCEL’s first $10 instant game, which launched on October 28, 2003. The game offers over 800,000 prizes ranging from $10 to $250,000 to be won instantly on the ticket. This totals over $17 million in cash prizes. Three top prizes of $250,000 are left in the game!

A second-chance drawing will be held after the last day to redeem winning tickets. This date will be announced at the time the end of game announcement is made. All non-winning Cash Bonanza tickets are eligible for this drawing. There are 41 second-chance prizes totaling over $250,000!

Since January 2002, the SCEL has transferred more than $502 million to the State’s 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.
