Two-time SC Lottery Winner

Lightning does indeed strike twice for a lucky South Carolina winner! While the winner did not win the whole jackpot, two hefty lottery prizes were won in the space of 11 short days.

Out of Myrtle Beach, SC or alternatively, locals call it the Grand Strand, the mystery man enjoys shopping at Walmart nearby and then drops by the Murphy USA gas station located at 10826 Kings Rd.

After winning $40,000 for the July 16 drawing, he felt his lucky streak continuing. Thus, he opted to buy an additional Mega Millions Quick Pick for the July 27 drawing. Fortuitous, for sure, as he won $3 million by matching all five white balls for that drawing.
