COLUMBIA, SC (October 13, 2020) – A Georgetown man was having dinner when a lottery win had him put down his fork.

“It was like, BAM,” he said describing the moment he won a $30,000 prize. “I didn’t finish my dinner.”

The winner, who did not wish to be identified, says he bought the winning $2 Win It All ticket at the Money Saver on Highmarket St. in Georgetown on his way home from work. He was in the middle of eating when he scratched the ticket. He says the $30,000 win cost him his appetite, which has since returned.

“It was thrilling,” he told South Carolina Education Lottery officials. “Fantastic!”

Three top prizes of $30,000 remain in the Win It All instant ticket game at odds of 1 in 432,000.

Money Saver in Georgetown received a commission of $300 for selling the claimed ticket.
