Valley Jack at 3488 Augusta Road in Warrenville sold the $250,000 winning ticket.

COLUMBIA, SC (October 8, 2018) – A Burnettown man didn’t shower, change clothes or sleep after scratching the $10 instant ticket Emerald Green 10s the night before coming to Columbia to claim his $250,000 prize.

“My four children, which are cats, and I are going to enjoy this blessing,” said the winner. “Nothing fancy, all I’m going to do is get a new home with a reasonable price tag.”

He did mention that a little trip to Myrtle Beach might be in his near future, but the winner said he’s going to keep his old truck. It works just fine.

The ticket was purchased from Valley Jack located at 3488 Augusta Road in Warrenville.

There are five top prizes remaining in the Emerald Green 10s instant ticket, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Valley Jack in Warrenville received a commission of $2,500.
