COLUMBIA, SC (October 3, 2013) – His friends call him “Lucky,” and they’re right.

A Charleston man has won $10,000 and $25,000 before in the South Carolina Education Lottery.

“Those wins just softened me up,” he said after recently winning $250,000.

He was picking up lunch when he bought the prevailing Big Money scratch-off.

He’s paying off his house with the winnings and looking ahead.

“The Powerball® jackpot’s next,” he promised.

Odds of winning the last top prize that remains in the $10 Big Money game are 1 in 500,000.

For selling the claimed winning ticket, Spinx 350 in North Charleston received a commission of $2,500.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, more than one million college scholarships and grants have been awarded to South Carolina’s students. In all, more than $3.1 BILLION has been transferred to support educational programs in the Palmetto State.
