Lexington Man Wins Bass Pro Shops® Prize Pack at Lottery Promotion

COLUMBIA, SC (April 1, 2011) – Jeff Humphreys of Lexington didn’t find a fishing pole at the Palmetto Sportmen’s Classic last weekend in Columbia, but the two Bass Pro Shops® instant tickets he picked up were a good catch.

He told lottery officials he won $20 on one of the tickets. He came up empty on the other, but entered the ticket in a second-chance drawing at the Lottery’s booth.

The ticket was selected and won Humphreys a Bass Pro Shops® Prize Pack complete with a tent, two sleeping bags and two camping chairs. The prize is valued at approximately $190.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Humphreys said. “I play the Lottery, but I never win anything big.”

The Bass Pro Shops® instant ticket is on sale now. Players can win up to $100,000 on the ticket or enter the second-chance promotion for a chance to win an Adventure Trip of a Lifetime or a $500 Bass Pro Shops® Gift Card. For details, visit sceducationlottery.com.

Before swinging by the Lottery’s office to pick up his new Bass Pro Shops® camping gear, he bought a $10 Carolina Millionaires Club instant ticket and won $100.

“This has been my lucky week,” he said.
