One South Carolina is happy his “experiment” paid off in a big way! All thanks to the hit show, “Lottery Changed My Life” this South Carolina man hit big!
The State reports that the South Carolina man watched “Lottery Changed My Life” consistently before deciding to test his experiment for three months. On his seventh big week of consistently buying tickets, he won the Powerball. After winning, the man needed help identifying exactly how much he earned.
The South Carolina man claims he had no clue on how to play Powerball, according to The State. After thinking he had only matched two numbers, his wife realized he matched five! This means he scored $100,000. Although he was able to win big this time, he plans to continue his experiment.
The South Carolina winner told the S.C. Education Lottery officials that he plans to play out the entire three-month experiment. His weekly goal was to spend $25 a week on lottery tickets. The man won a $500 prize the first week of the experiment and bought his next winning ticket in Hanahan, near Charleston.
After his Powerball win, the man took home $69,000 after taxes and has since bought a new car. This may not be the first time a television show has led to a big lottery win, but now let us see how the rest of his experiment plays out.
