COLUMBIA, SC (August 6, 2019) – A Greenwood man went for a walk after winning $250,000 on a lottery ticket.

“I walked up and down the road with the ticket,” he told lottery officials.

And with each step, he says he thought of more ways he could spend the prize money he won off a $10 MONOPOLY JACKPOT scratch-off.

“I’m thinking a house or a car,” he said.

One top prize of $250,000 remains in the MONOPOLY JACKPOT game, at odds of 1 in 792,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Ninety Six Shell #102 in Ninety Six received a commission of $2,500.

Players can enter non-winning MONOPOLY JACKPOT tickets for a chance to win a rolling cash jackpot prize. The next rolling cash jackpot drawing is scheduled for August 13, 2019, with three more rolling cash jackpot drawings to follow. A final drawing to award a $250,000 prize, with a chance to multiply up to $2.5 million, will be held at the conclusion of the MONOPOLY JACKPOT second-chance promotion.
