Man wins $250,000 on lottery ticket from Fort Mill store

A local man won $250,000 off a scratch-off lottery ticket he bought at The Country Store on Gold Hill Road in Fort Mill, according to lottery officials.

The man declined to be identified.

“I love playing the Lottery,” the man told officials, according to a press release sent Wednesday.
