Receiving $10 change leads man to $300,000 lottery decision
By Ben Hooper,
June 8 (UPI) -- A South Carolina man said receiving $10 change at a store led to the "spur of the moment decision" to buy a lottery ticket worth $300,000.
The Lowcountry man told South Carolina Education Lottery officials he made a purchase at the College Corner store on Coming Street in Charleston and received $10 change that he decided to spend on a Multiplier Surge scratch-off ticket.
"It was a spur-of-the-moment decision," the man said. "I had $10 in change and said give me one of those tickets."
The man said he scratched off the ticket when he arrived at work and was shocked to see the $300,000 prize.
"No way," the man recalled thinking.
The winner said he is in no rush to spend his prize money.
