COLUMBIA, SC (April 23, 2024) – It’s been a winning four weeks for lottery players at a chain of Upstate convenience stores.

Last week the Lottery caught up with an Anderson man, who played the lottery at the Stop-A-Minit store on N. Main St. in Anderson and won $200,000. He beat the 1 in 720,000 odds on a $5 Bonus 9s scratch-off to win the game’s top prize.

“It’s my lucky store,” the Anderson winner told lottery officials.

Others agree.

Two weeks ago the Lottery shared the story of another Upstate winner, who won $1 million at the Stop-A-Minit location on Pelham Rd. in Greenville. And that’s not all. A lucky player won $3,000 on a scratch-off at the E. Shockley Ferry Rd. store in Anderson, and a Pick 4 player at the Augusta Rd. store in Pelzer won $5,000.

“I’m looking forward to having a little extra change to take care of some things,” the $200,000 winner told lottery officials.  “I feel good.”
