TAYLORS, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - An Upstate convenience store is now known as a lucky spot after selling two, big winning tickets.

Paras Point, located at 2904 Wade Hampton Blvd. in Taylors, sold a lottery ticket worth $1 million in late August and then a little over two weeks later sold one worth $300,000.

The millionaire says he dusted off his ticket to be sure he was seeing it right, and then didn’t sleep a wink that night. “I’m still working every day,” he said. “But it’s a life changer for sure.”

The $300,000 winner told South Carolina Lottery officials that on Saturdays he’ll occasionally take a chance on a lottery ticket, but never expected to win big enough to be debt free with plenty left over for savings. “I just sat there,” he said when he saw his payday.

The owners of the store, say more people are coming in to play the Lottery.

They have been at the store for seven years, and this is their first big win.
