Charleston man wins $100K on Carolina Panthers scratch-off

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A Carolina Panthers fan in Charleston is $100,000 after a team-themed scratch-off lottery ticket won him the big bucks.

Lottery officials say a Charleston man scored a $100,000 prize on the Carolina Panthers scratch-off after purchasing the lotto ticket at Rivers Mart in North Charleston earlier this month.

What makes this win even sweeter?

The prize winner collected his winnings on the same day the Carolina Panthers beat the Patriots on Monday Night Football.

"I sat back and enjoyed that game," he said. "This is as good as it gets."

Rivers Mart received a commission of $1,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
