Lugoff family searching for bigger home after $1 million lottery win

Sumter man wins lottery for the second time in his life

LUGOFF, S.C. (WACH)-- One Lugoff family is now looking for a bigger home after their big lottery win!

A Lugoff couple is going house hunting after they received a $1 million SC Education Lottery win.

“We need a bigger house,” said the mother of four.

It was the husband who bought the winning lottery ticket at White Pond Food N Beverage on White Pond Road in Elgin.

This same store sold a $1 million winning ticket in 2009.

The husband told lottery officials he got home with the ticket and went to cut the grass. When he was done in the yard, he came in, showered and sat on the catch to scratch off the ticket.

But the didn't stay seated long, the man said he ran outside and yelled to his wife to come inside.

He told her they won $1 million!

The couple is thrilled and are looking forward to a larger home where the kids can have their own bedrooms.

“I don’t want the house to be too big,” said the wife. “I don’t want to be cleaning all the time.”

One $1 million top prize remains in the Platinum Millionaire game with odds of 1 in 1.6 million.

White Pond Food N Beverage won too. The retailer received a commission of $10,000 for selling the claimed ticket.

Players can enter non-winning Platinum Millionaire tickets into a final drawing to award an additional $1 million prize. The draw date has yet to be announced. For updates and details, visit
