‘Pulling in the dough’: Sumter truck driver has cargo full of cash after winning the lottery
SUMTER COUNTY, S.C. (WOLO) – A Sumter truck driver has won big in the South Carolina State lottery.
Lottery officials say Robert Miller made a routine truck stop for a quick bite to eat before continuting his route then his life drastically changed.
Thanks to a $Emerald Green 10s scratch off card, he’s $250,000 richer.
According to a statement from lottery officials Miller called his wife as soon as it happened. “I couldn’t keep it to myself,” Miller said. “I thought I was going to bust if I didn’t tell someone I’d won.”
The couple says they’ll be debt free by the weekend and are going to buy a house.
“Our dreams have come true,” Miller said.
The odds of winning the game is 1 in 660,000.
For selling the claimed ticket, Enmarket #892 in Harleyville received a commission of $2,500.
