Myrtle Beach, SC: On August 16, 2002, Piggly Wiggly proved to be the lucky store, selling one of the top prize winners of the instant ticket game Big Bang Bucks.

“I was surprised that we had sold a ticket worth that much. We’ve sold winning tickets but never any for that amount,” said store owner Lester Cannon. “I think it’s great!” The $25,000 winning ticket was sold at Piggly Wiggly #7 located at 1700 N. Kings Hwy.

Currently, there is over $7 million left in prize money for the instant ticket Big Bang Bucks.

In its first six months, the SCEL has returned over $80 million dollars to the state of South Carolina for education. All SCEL profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include South Carolina’s HOPE, LIFE, Palmetto Fellows, National Guard scholarship programs; Lottery Tuition Assistance for 2 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.
