A pair of Anderson friends let the feeling soak in for two weeks.
What feeling, exactly? The feeling of winning $1 million in the Mega Millions multistate lottery.
“I couldn’t keep the ticket,” said one unidentified winner. “I was scared something was going to happen to it, or if I kept it too long the numbers might fade.”
His friend held the ticket for two weeks, the S.C. Education Lottery said.
The pair has been playing the South Carolina Education Lottery together for years. Then, one of them checked the winning numbers for the June 7 drawing in The (Anderson) Independent-Mail. He said he was rendered speechless.
