A South Carolina man is a millionaire after buying a $10 scratch-off lottery ticket in Rock Hill.
Ervin Ratterree Junior of Catawba says he plays the lottery daily and has won quite a few times. But on Wednesday the 52-year-old won his biggest prize — $1 million. "I was shocked," Ratterree told the (Rock Hill) Herald. "That's a dream come true."
Ratterree purchased the winning Cash Bonanza Riches instant ticket from the Lesslie Food Shop. Four $1 million top prizes are still out there, said lottery spokeswoman Stephanie Hemminghaus.
Ratterree, a former Rock Hill High School student, says he'll use the winnings to pay off his house, and retire someday.
But winning didn't stop him from returning to work at his sign company. And he says he'll continue to buy lottery tickets.
On Thursday, he won $25.
