COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina man won $125,000 in a scratch-off lottery game.

The South Carolina Education Lottery says the man, whose name was not released but he's from Blacksburg, is planning to buy a new pickup truck with his winnings.

The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports the winning ticket was one of four in the $5 Green and Gold game, with odds of winning at 1 in 660,000.

The three other jackpot tickets have yet to be claimed.

For selling the claimed ticket, Get N Go in Blacksburg received a commission of $1,250.
