A Bamberg man’s heart skipped a beat when he scratched off a $150,000 win, according to a South Carolina Education Lottery release.

“I grabbed my chest,” he said.

Now that he’s recovered, he’s going Christmas shopping.

E-Z Shop #18 in Bamberg will receive a $1,500 commission for selling the ticket.

The Bamberg winner claimed the last top prize of $150,000 in the $5 Giant Jumbo Bucks game that went on sale in June of 2016, at odds of 1 in 600,000.

There have been several big wins in Bamberg recently.

Last week, someone bought a $200,000 Palmetto Cash 5 ticket from the Palm Pantry #1 on Main Highway.

The odds of winning $200,000 playing Palmetto Cash 5 are 1 in 1,003,884.

A Palm Pantry #1 employee said someone hit a $250,000 win from a ticket sold the week before that.
