A $25,000 bonus check was presented to the Scottsville IGA on Friday, March 4th. The store hit it big when someone purchased a winning Lotto South ticket there last month, worth $10.3 million.

The store owner says he's thrilled and already has an idea of what to spend the money on.

"Some of it I'm going to use here in the store, some of it I think I'm going to give a little bonus to my employees and some of it I hope to set up a scholarship fund," said Joe Hale, store owner.

So far, no one has stepped forward to claim that jackpot. They have 180 days to do so. Again, the winning numbers for the Lotto South jackpot on February 12 were 6, 9, 10, 14, 21 and 27.
