Million Dollar Winner Claims Prize

     NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) - It wasn't a winning lottery ticket worth $260 million, but one South Carolina man is $1 million richer after buying a winning scratch-off ticket.

The South Carolina Education Lottery said Friday the man claimed his $1 million prize after purchasing the ticket in Newberry, but asked that his name not be released. The man bought the Cash Bonanza Bonus ticket for $10.

The win comes just days after a retired South Carolina state employee stepped forward to claim the largest Powerball jackpot ever won with a ticket bought in the state.

Solomon Jackson Jr., of Columbia gave few details about himself or how he will spend the money. He purchased his ticket last week at a gas station and convenience store next to a Wal-Mart in Columbia.
