GARDEN CITY, SC (WMBF) - One father gave his son a $200,000 taxes paid, winning lottery ticket after purchasing, and scratching a losing ticket for himself.

According to SC Lottery officials, the father unknowingly gave his son the winning ticket. The parents were on vacation at the beach, and the father bought two of the $200,000 Taxes Paid tickets from Murphy #8663 station on Highway 17 in Garden City. One of the tickets did not win, but the $10 ticket he bought his son as a souvenir did.

“The most I've ever won is $50,” the father said. Officials say the son plans to pay off his student loans, and buy his parents lunch.

Three top prizes of $200,000 remain in the $200,000 Taxes Paid game. The odds of winning $200,000 are one in 696,000.

The Murphy station received a commission of $2,941.18 for selling the ticket, according to officials.
