The South Carolina lottery, as part of the MUSL, or Multi-State Lottery Association, offers only two games: Powerball and Mega Millions. The majority of states that participate in any MUSL lottery games also have state-specific lotteries as well, with a few exceptions. South Carolina is one of the majority states, with its Cash 5, Pick 4, and Pick 3 games offered for in-state sales only. The lottery in South Carolina functions in the same manner as most other states, with specific uses for all of the funds generated by the lottery ticket sales.
The state of South Carolina began selling tickets for its lottery program in January of 2002 as a result of a statewide vote. The reason that the lottery was proposed to the state was as a means of generating money for state funded education programs without an increase in the taxation of the state’s citizens. Since the state voted in favor of beginning the lottery program in 2002, the lottery has provided nearly $2 billion dollars for the education programs alone.
The state of South Carolina has a specific purpose for all of the money generated through its lottery program: the bulk of the proceeds pay for many of the education programs within the state. Funding goes to:
The rest of the money pays for things like the prizes paid out to jackpot winners, administrative costs (most of the lotteries in the United States are self-sustaining, meaning that the money generated by them pays for every function of the program), and contributing to the state government’s general fund.

On August 19th, 2009, Solomon Jackson Jr. spent $2 dollars on Powerball tickets, on a whim. The retired state employee ended up only needing to buy one, as one of the two tickets he purchased beat the one-in-195 million odds, landing him a $260 million dollar payday. This was the largest reported lottery win in state history, and one of the largest ever country wide to be won by a single ticket buyer.
