COLUMBIA, SC (May 15, 2020) – A Spartanburg man is eyeing a new truck after playing the Lottery and winning $500,000.

The winner, who asked not to be identified, purchased an oversized $500,000 Jackpot ticket at the 1st Choice Food Mart on New Cut Rd. in Spartanburg. He says seeing a half-a-million-dollar payday was a shock.

“I had to sit there for a minute,” he admitted, to let the win sink in.

He told lottery officials he hopes to be sitting in a new ride soon.

“I’ve wanted a truck for a while,” he said.

The Spartanburg winner overcame odds of 1 in 660,000 to win the second top prize of $500,000 in the ($10) $500,000 Jackpot game. Four top prizes remain in the game.

1st Choice Food Mart in Spartanburg received a commission of $5,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
