CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A Charleston couple is now a quarter-of-a-million dollars richer.

Officials with the South Carolina Education Lottery say a man scratched off a $250,000 win on the Mega Bucks game while sitting in his driveway waiting on the garage door to open. 

“I called my wife from the car,” he said. 

According to a news release, the couple spent the following days pouring over their bills and expenses coming up with a plan.

“My wife figured it all out,” credited the husband. They are debt free today.

“I’m relaxed,” he added. 

As of just after 11 a.m., four top prizes of $250,000 remain in the $10 Mega Bucks game. Officials say the odds of winning $250,000 are 1 in 696,000.
