Little River duo keeps lottery win quiet

LITTLE RIVER, SC (WMBF) - Though his wife is prepared to shout the good news, the newest Little River lottery winner isn't so keen to tell all his friends he just won $250,000!

"You'd like to talk about it," admits the wife of the man who just beat the one in 3,904,701 odds to cash in his Mega Millions lottery ticket for a cool $250,000.

"But, we don't want to do that," the husband states.

SC Education Lottery officials say if the anonymous winner had matched the Megaplier number, he would have won $1,000,000.

And his win is definitely something to be proud of. He purchased the winning quick pick from the Kangaroo Express #461 on Highway 17 in Little River, who will receive a commission of $2,500.
