GREENVILLE, S.C., (UPI) —  A South Carolina man who won $200,000 on a lottery scratch-off ticket told officials he had been living at a rescue mission.

South Carolina Education Lottery officials said the Greenville man, whose name was not released, won the prize on a $10  scratch-off ticket called The Color of Money and said the money will enable him to move out of the mission, WHNS-TV, Greenville, reported Monday.

“To see a person you know, he gets $200,000 but he doesn’t have a penny in his pocket, I couldn’t believe he won $200,000,” said Simon Sfeir, owner of the Simons Liquors store where the man purchased the ticket.
