Scratch-off ticket reveals $77,777 top prize for northern Indiana couple
On Tuesday evening, February 2, Theresa Budd and her husband stopped by a Family Express in Plymouth to prepare for their drive to Indianapolis the following morning. While she was there, she purchased a $5 Jeweled 7s Scratch-off ticket. While driving home, Theresa began scratching her ticket and couldn’t believe what she was seeing. “What is it? Did we win $5?” her husband jokingly asked. “This can’t be right,” Theresa said under her breath. She responded to him, “This is saying we won $77,000 [$77,777].”
The second they got home, Theresa and her husband kept looking at the ticket in disbelief. They still could not believe what they were seeing so they sent a photo of the ticket to their kids to check it on the Hoosier Lottery app. They quickly responded with a screenshot sharing a “Congratulations!” message on the screen.
“It’s really funny. When we play Scratch-offs, we are so used to only winning $5. This is quite the surprise!” Theresa said reflecting on her win. She and her husband are very excited to be able to plan their dream vacation to Hawaii!
Congratulations to Theresa on her $77,777 top prize win on the Jeweled 7s Scratch-off.
