History of the South Carolina Lottery

The South Carolina Education Lottery began operating on January 7th, 2002 after the South Carolina General Assembly approved the establishment of a state lottery in June 2001. The Lottery joined Powerball in 2002 and began selling Mega Millions tickets in January 2010.

An anonymous ticket holder from South Carolina won a $399.4 million Powerball jackpot on September 18th, 2013.

To date, the South Carolina Lottery has raised more than $3.4 billion for educational initiatives such as K-12 programs, community education and scholarships for college students. Roughly 26.1 percent of every dollar raised through ticket sales goes back to the state to help support these good causes.

Claiming South Carolina Lottery Prizes

Any South Carolina Lottery prize worth $500 or less can be claimed at any authorized lottery retailer. Prizes worth up to $100,000 can be redeemed by mail or by visiting the Claims Center in Columbia. Prizes worth $100,001 or more will need to be redeemed in person at the same Claims Center - you can't claim these winnings via post.

The South Carolina Lottery withholds taxes of seven percent on lottery winnings worth more than $500. Larger prizes may be subject to federal withholding taxes of 25 percent.
You have 180 days from the date of a drawing to claim your prize. Instant games may be claimed up to 90 days from the date that the game ends.

The Fine Print

If you want to play South Carolina lottery games for the chance to win great prizes, you'll need to be at least 18 years old.

Don't forget - you can't win a prize for a lottery game that you never bought a ticket for in the first place. If you ever receive a letter, phone call or email telling you that you've won a massive lottery prize, then you are most likely the target of a lottery scam. Read the scams page to learn more and protect yourself from becoming a victim.
