Darlington man wins $200K from instant lottery ticket

DARLINGTON, SC - COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) - One Darlington man is seeing some big dollar signs after purchasing a lucky instant ticket on Easter.

The man, who wishes not to have his name publicized, purchased a Holiday Riches ticket that yielded a $200,000 prize.

"When I saw it was a winner, it felt like a blessing," the man said.

The ticket was purchased at Town & Country Mart in Darlington, and will earn a $2,000 sales incentive for selling a lucky ticket. Every retailer that sells a claimed ticket of $10,000 or more earns a 1 percent commission that's capped at $50,000.
