A Moncks Corner man will keep working after winning $200,000 in a lottery this week.
The S.C. Education Lottery Commission is not releasing the man’s name at his request but sent out some information today.
The man bought the $10 Green and Gold scratch-off ticket at the Kangaroo Express at 1677 N. Main St. in Summerville sometime within the last two weeks, according to lottery spokeswoman Holli Armstrong.
He will continue to work remodeling homes and put the money he won in the bank, Armstrong said.
The man told Armstrong he doesn’t play the lottery regularly and bought a ticket on a whim, she said.
The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 624,000.
Four $200,000 Green and Gold tickets are still out there, Armstrong said.
In other local lottery news, nobody has claimed the $10,000 winning Mega Millions ticket that was bought at the Northbridge Exxon in West Ashley in March, Armstrong said. The ticket must be claimed by 4:45 p.m. today or it expires.
But somebody stepped forward Friday to claimthe $10,000 winning Mega Millions ticket that was bought at the Citgo on Broad Street in Sumpter, she said.
