COLUMBIA, SC (April 9, 2019) – A Cheraw man won the Lottery on his way to Walmart.

The winner told lottery officials he stopped at the Corner Cupboard on Chesterfield Hwy. and scratched off a $250,000 win.

His plans changed. Instead of going shopping, the winner says he “went home to sit back and relax.”

“I’m going to enjoy retirement,” he said.

Three top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 In the Money game, at odds of 1 in 660,000.

For selling the claimed ticket, Corner Cupboard in Cheraw received a commission of $2,500.
