“I started shaking a little.”: South Carolina man’s lucky $20 scratch-off ticket brings him $2 million prize

A man from South Carolina made an impromptu decision to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket, which proved to be a very good move.

The lucky South Carolina winner paid only a $20 for the scratch-off ticket

A spontaneous decision to buy a scratch-off lottery ticket turned out to be the right choice for one South Carolina man

This man, who lives in the Upstate area, didn’t originally plan to buy a lottery ticket. However, during a visit to a Speedee Mart store, he suddenly decided to purchase one. This was mentioned in a news release by the South Carolina Education Lottery on January 19. At the store, he chose a $20 scratch-off ticket, as confirmed by lottery authorities.

The amount he won was unexpectedly large, surprising the man, as stated by lottery officials. He ended up winning a whopping $2 million from that ticket, lottery officials reported.

“My mind was blown,” the man said in the release. “I started shaking a little.” Because his win came as such a surprise, the man told lottery officials he didn’t have any solid plans for how to spend it.
