A few days later, on his way to work, he stopped in at the Circle K on W. 5th St. in Summerville and bought a ticket.

“I hesitated on buying the ticket, because I was in a hurry and the guy in front of me in line was taking a long time,” he said.

But he’s so glad he waited. Patience led to him buying a winning $250,000 lottery ticket that day.

Miller and his fiancée are buying a new house with the prize money, said lottery officials.

The Circle K on West 5th Street in Summerville received a commission of $2,500 for selling the winning ticket.
