COLUMBIA, SC (April 5, 2021) – “Wow!” said a Winnsboro lottery player when he won $350,000 on a South Carolina Education Lottery scratch-off.

The Lottery caught up with the winner a few days after cashing in the Mighty Jumbo Bucks ticket, and the excitement of winning hadn’t wore off yet.

“It’s shocking,” he said. “I’m still shocked.”

The winner says he stopped in the Boones Barn on Hwy. 321 in Winnsboro and picked out a scratch-off for $10 to win $350,000.

That’s enough he says to buy a new house and a car.

The winner overcame odds of 1 in 857,142.86 to win $350,000 in the ($10) Mighty Jumbo Bucks game. Three top prizes remain in the game.

Boones Barn in Winnsboro received a commission of $3,500 for selling the claimed ticket.
