Mysterious Millionaire: Irmo lottery winner declines to release his name

Millionaire Madness

COLUMBIA (WACH) â?? South Carolinaâ??s newest millionaire is keeping a low profile.

The Irmo man won $1 million on the Millionaire Madness scratch-off ticket and declined to release his name.

Not even the clerks at Revis Grocery, at 1005 N. Congress St. in Fort Mill knew his identity. They were surprised to learn they had sold the winning ticket.

Lottery officials can say the millionaire was lucky enough to overcome odds of 1 in ¼ Million.

A manning woman claimed the first $1 million prize on the Millionaire Madness ticket.

Revis Grocery received a commission of $10,000 for selling the claimed ticket.

Non-winning Millionaire Madness tickets can be entered in a second-chance drawing by mail or online at for a chance to win $1 million.
