Plymouth couple win $77,777 top prize on scratch-off
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. – A quick trip to the gas station has now turned into a trip of a lifetime for one Plymouth couple. Theresa Budd and her husband won $77,777 off of a $5 Jeweled 7s Scratch-off ticket on Feb. 2.
Budd and her husband stopped by a Family Express in Plymouth to get gas for a trip to Indy the following morning. While there, she purchased the scratch-off, not thinking too much about it. When driving home, the scratch-off revealed something truly unexpected.
“This can’t be right. This is saying we won $77,000 [$77,777],” Budd said to her husband.
Once they got home, Budd sent a picture of the scratch-off to her kids, so they could check if the ticket on the Hoosier Lottery app.
The two received a screenshot with a “congratulations” message on the screen. Their disbelief faded away.
Budd and her husband welcome the unexpected surprise and are planning on taking a dream vacation to Hawaii with the earnings.
The Jeweled 7s estimated overall odds are 1 in 3.88.
