“I grabbed my chest,” says Bamberg lottery winner

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCBD) — A Bamberg man’s heart skipped a beat when he scratched-off a $150,000 win on a South Carolina Education Lottery ticket.

“I grabbed my chest,” he said.

Recovered, he’s going Christmas shopping.

Now that the prize is paid, E-Z Shop #18 in Bamberg receives a $1,500 commission.

The Bamberg winner claimed the last top prize of $150,000 in the $5 Giant Jumbo Bucks game that went on sale in June of 2016, at odds of 1 in 600,000. A new $5 Giant Jumbo Bucks game is on sale now with eight top prizes of $150,000.
