BLUFFTON, S.C. — For a lottery winner in South Carolina, a major jackpot will allow him to see his family for the first time in many years.

The South Carolina Education Lottery reports that the winner in Bluffton plans to use his $300,000 winnings to finally see his mom and dad, who live outside the country, after roughly 20 years away.

"I'm so happy," he said, adding that he was also "very blessed" to have bought a winning ticket. 

And, in beating 1 in 900,000 odds to win the "$300 Grand" game, he was also very lucky.

The Parker's convenience store at 1286 Fording Island Road that sold the ticket is also enjoying a bit of that luck having received a $3,000 commission.
