March 12, 2014 – The South Carolina Education Lottery is celebrating spring (a little early) along with thousands of golfers looking forward to their next trip to the state’s top-notch courses.
The state Lottery today announced the launch of a new game, Heritage Classic Foundation, and a second chance contest that will award two winners with vacation packages for the Heritage Classic Foundation Golf Tournament on Hilton Head Island in April 2015.
The new scratch-off game costs $3 to play, and players can scratch their way to one of three top prizes worth $75,000, or to any of the eight smaller cash prizes ranging from $3 to $1,000.

The second chance contest for the new golf-themed game will award one $75,000 prize along with the two trips to Hilton Head for the Heritage Classic Foundation Golf Tournament.
