COLUMBIA, SC (November 26, 2007) – Michael Antonowicz is a man who believes what goes around, comes around. He’s a frequent lottery player who’s won many times and often shares what he does win. This time around will be no different, according to Antonowicz. He just won one of the $200,000 top prizes playing Jolly Jackpot and plans on giving some of his winnings away.
“I feel lucky because I enjoy being generous. When I win playing the Lottery, I always give some of the money away. I believe it’ll come back to me someday, and it usually does,” Antonowicz said.
The Lexington man plays Powerball®, Pick 3, Pick 4 and instant ticket games. Why did he buy the ten dollar Jolly Jackpot ticket? “I always buy the newest tickets,” Antonowicz said. “Jolly Jackpot came out just a few weeks ago, so I figured my chances were pretty good I’d win something. I was surprised to win $200,000 though!”
Jolly Jackpot is one of five holiday games on sale now at more than 3,500 Lottery retailers around the Palmetto State.
Since its inception in 2002, the South Carolina Education Lottery has launched more than 240 instant games and five online games. Currently, SCEL offers approximately 30 instant games and four online games. SCEL produces an average of four new games each month in a variety of themes, play styles, and price points of $1 - $10. During the past five years, the support the South Carolina Education Lottery has received from players and retailers is responsible for the General Assembly appropriating more than $1.74 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2008.
