COLUMBIA— The South Carolina lottery is ending the MegaMatch drawing at the end of this month.

The lottery says it doesn’t want players to confuse the game where they had to match six numbers with the multistate game, Mega Millions, which is coming to South Carolina in late January.

Megamatch has been running for nearly two years, selling more than $24 million in tickets and giving away $16 million in prizes.

The final drawing will be Dec. 29, and players will have 180 days to claim their winnings.
