Irmo Man Using $1 Million in Winnings to Start Own Business
An Irmo man, who works in construction, says he plans to use his $1 million dollars in lottery winnings to start his own business
IRMO, S.C. (WOLO) – An Irmo man, who works in construction, says he plans to use his $1 million in lottery winnings to start his own business.
The S.C. Education Lottery said the young man won in Round O, a small town between Walterboro and Cottageville.
Officials said he and a co-worker stopped at the Circle K on Ace Basin Parkway for a bite to eat, and he decided to play the lottery.
“I wouldn’t have believe it if I hadn’t have been there to see it,” his friend said.
The lottery said the winner’s friends and mother joined him at the Lottery’s Columbia Claims Center Monday to cash in the million-dollar winning ticket.
“His life has changed forever,” his mom said. “This couldn’t have happened to a better person or a harder worker.”
Two $1 million top prizes remain in the Platinum Millionaire game with odds of 1 in 1.6 million. Circle K wins, too. The retailer received a commission of $10,000 for selling the claimed ticket.
