According to the South Carolina Education Lottery, the man purchased a $10 scratch-off ticket from The Country Peddler gas station in Newberry. Unbeknownst to him, this seemingly ordinary purchase held the key to a life-changing windfall.

SC Lottery player unknowingly chauffeured around his newfound fortune for 48 hours before checking the ticket. “It was a surprise,” the winner simply stated upon realizing his incredible luck. Thankfully, unlike the ticket, the man didn’t wait to claim his prize. He promptly cashed it in, choosing to remain anonymous. South Carolina Education Lottery gives rights to its winners to remain anonymous. While he kept his future plans for the windfall under wraps, he did reveal he intends to “spend it wisely” and that the money will “enhance his life.”

The odds of winning the top prize in this game were a staggering 1 in 960,000. The other three top prizes remain unclaimed, this lucky Midlands man is undoubtedly grateful for his lucky find and the financial security it brings. The Country Peddler also celebrated by receiving a $5,000 commission for selling the winning ticket.
