Henry Harvey II, of Spring Lake, told North Carolina Education Lottery officials that his recent win made it all the more shocking when the $25 Extreme Cash scratch-off ticket he bought from the Circle K store in Hope Mills turned out to be a $100,000 winner.

"Two weeks ago, I won $5,000 there on a $10 scratch-off," he said. "So, this time, when I scratched-off and saw I won, I was extremely happy and surprised."

Harvey said his most immediate plan for his winnings is to "stick it in the bank."

"It was a shock," he said. "Still is!"
