A Georgia man who bought a winning lottery ticket on Hilton Head Island was so surprised that he didn’t have his money ready for a toll booth attendant on his way out of town.
According to a news release from the South Carolina Education Lottery, the man — who was not named — bought a $125,000 scratch-off ticket in the $5 Lucky Loot game at Kangaroo Express #1650 on Lagoon St.
“I didn’t have my money ready to pay the toll,” he said. “I was so surprised I just won the Lottery.”
“I’ll be back to Hilton Head,” he added.
