Sumter man claims $1M lottery ticket from Broad Street store


A Sumter man is thinking of ways to spend his $1 million in winnings.

The man purchased a winning lottery ticket from the American Grocery and Liquor Store on Broad Street, according to a news release from S.C. Education Lottery.

“I cried,” he told lottery officials when he realized how much he won, according to the release.

He said he sat in his car outside the store’s parking lot clutching the Million Dollar Multiplier ticket to his chest waiting for his heart to settle back down. 

“I’m going to use it wisely and take it easy,” he said in the release. 

One top prize of $1 million remains in the Million Dollar Multiplier game at odds of 1 in 1.6 million. 

For selling the claimed ticket, American Grocery & Liquor Store received a commission of $10,000.

Players can enter their non-winning Million Dollar Multiplier tickets into a second-chance drawing for a chance to win an additional $1 million prize. For complete details on the Extreme Millions Second-Chance Drawing, visit
