One South Carolina resident wins big with the lottery!  The lottery player is now $75,000 richer after buying a scratch-off ticket, which isn’t his usual choice!  The winning ticket was sold at the Lil Cricket #3806 on Janie G. Goree Boulevard in Carlisle, South Carolina. Carlisle is a small town about 2 hours from Augusta.

The resident did not wish to be identified, but told lottery officials he took a new approach.  Instead of buying his normal ticket, the man picked out the $3 Bingo Squared scratch-off.  And it looks like he made the right choice.

He admits he was “shocked.” When it comes to how he’ll use his winnings, he plans to buy a home.

According to the South Carolina Education Lottery, the odds of winning are 1 in 528,000.  This South Carolina resident’s win leaves one remaining top prize of $75,000 in the Bingo Squared scratch-off game.

And here are a few fun facts about Carlisle, South Carolina, according to the town’s website:
