"The scratch off that I received was a gift in a goodie bag that my boss gave out to all employees before Christmas," he said. "He got two tickets for everyone and put them in the gift bag. So, I scratched it off after work and it turned out to be a winner!"
Batts said he was initially suspicious of the $200,000 prize.
"I'm not gonna lie. At first, I thought it was one of those prank lottery tickets," he recalled. "So, I went up to him and was like, 'You're playing with me!'
"And he said, 'No!' and then his eyes got really big, and he started running around screaming and then I started running around screaming."
Batts said it "feels really good" to win the jackpot.
"Definitely going to try to invest it and make more money off of it and I'll give some back to my family," he said.
