GREENWOOD, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - An Upstate man told the South Carolina Education Lottery he waited 20 years to find out what it was like to win big playing the lottery.

“I’m so happy it happened,” he said.  “I wish everyone could experience it.”

The man’s luck changed on a scratch-off ticket that he purchased at the Greenwood Mart located at 1208 Bypass 72 Northeast in Greenwood.
