COLUMBIA, SC (October 15, 2018) – An engaged Clemson couple will be starting their life together in a new home following a South Carolina Education Lottery win.

The groom won $125,000 on his lunch break off a lottery ticket he scratched at the Murphy USA #6940 on Eighteen Mile Rd. in Central.

On his way back to work he called his fiancée with the good news.

“I’ve been a nervous wreck ever since,” said the bride-to-be.

For selling the claimed ticket Murphy USA #6940 in Central received a commission of $1,250.

Four top prizes of $125,000 remain in the $5 Ruby Red 5s game, at odds of 1 in 528,000.
