BOILING SPRINGS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Boiling Springs man won an ATV after buying a South Carolina Education Lottery scratch-off ticket, according to lottery officials.

Officials said B. J. Humphries was one of five people to win a red Honda Rancher 4x4 ATV after he mailed in a non-winning ticket for the Lottery's Honda scratch-off contest.

Humphries picked up his prize from the Palmetto Cycle Center on Simuel Road in Spartanburg before Christmas, officials said.

Humphries admitted he was surprised to learn he had won.

"I thought it was a scam when the Lottery called to tell me I won it," Humphries said.

Lottery officials said a total of 15 ATVs will be given, all built at the Honda plan in Timmonsville, SC.

Lottery officials said five more ATV winners will be announced on Jan. 30. Participants can enter non-winning Honda tickets online or by mail by Jan. 23 to enter the second drawing.

The date of the third drawing has not been announced.
