COLUMBIA, SC (November 21, 2018) – While at work the day before Thanksgiving, a Manning man received a phone call from the Lottery giving him one million reasons to be thankful.

He won $1 million just in time for the holidays!

“You gotta be kidding me,” was the winner’s first response. “No way!”

After receiving the phone call, the winner broke down and cried. “This has changed my life and my family’s lives. A blessing,” he expressed.

The gentleman won $1 million on Tuesday when a non-winning ticket he’d entered online through the Lottery’s Players’ Club was selected from the more than 504,000 entries received in the Extreme Millions Second-Chance Promotion.

The timing of this win is “Awesome” according to the winner, as his family is expanding.

One thing for certain, this winner is going to have one awesome Thanksgiving tomorrow.
