12/31/2018 12:32:12 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (December 31, 2018) – Lottery players with Holiday Cash Add-A-Play tickets printed in error on December 25, 2017 have until Monday, January 7, 2019 to seek a refund.

Players should mail their original Holiday Cash Add-A-Play tickets (no copies or other reproductions will be accepted) depicting nine “Tree” symbols purchased on or after 5:51(17:51) P.M. on December 25, 2017 to this address for a refund:

S.C. Education Lottery
P.O. Box 11039
Columbia, SC 29211-1039

Include your name and return address. The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) will refund the purchase price for each returned ticket and reimburse the player for postage up to the amount of first class USPS postage for the ticket(s) submitted to SCEL. Since these reimbursements will require manual processing, we ask that players mail in all tickets to avoid wait time at the Claims Center.

The SCEL Board of Commissioners voted to reimburse the purchase price paid by each Holiday Cash Add-A-Play ticketholder bought on December 25, 2017 on or after 5:51 p.m. after an independent, impartial analysis revealed these tickets were produced or issued in error. This decision is required by South Carolina Code Section 59-150-230(C)(3)(a) which provides that prizes arising from a ticket produced or issued in error must not be paid.
