COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) -
An Anderson man shared part of $200,000 lottery winnings with a co-worker who bought him the tickets.
Derek Ward, who manages a restaurant in town, said he asked an employee to buy some scratcher tickets at the Quick Stop Food Mart on Clemson Boulevard. He said the pair scratched the tickets during a break, winning the top prize in the Crazy Wild 10s game.
Ward told lottery officials he was glad he could help his co-worker out with $10,000.
A round of golf is how Ward plans to celebrate the win, according to Holli Armstrong of the South Carolina Education Lottery.
Armstrong said three top prizes remain in the Crazy Wild 10s game.
The Quick Stop Food Mart will receive a $2,000 commission for selling the winning ticket.
