COLUMBIA, SC (April 15, 2021) – A Rock Hill lottery player says his $25,000 a Year for LIFE win on a Lucky for Life ticket will “come in handy.”

The winner, who does not wish to be identified, picked his own numbers and played them at the York Mart at 597 South Anderson Rd. in Rock Hill in the Monday, March 22 drawing.

He recognized his numbers immediately, matching the first five numbers drawn 3 - 5 - 24 - 31 - 45 but missing the Lucky Ball number “1.”

“I couldn’t believe it,” he told lottery officials. “This is nice.”

The winner chose the one-time cash payment of $390,000 over the $25,000 a year for LIFE prize.

The odds of winning $25,000 a year for life are 1 in 1,813,028.

For selling the winning Lucky for Life ticket, York Mart in Rock Hill received a $3,900 commission once it was claimed.
