An anonymous woman couldn’t believe it when her Best of 7s instant ticket showed to be a top prize winner for $777,777!
The lucky woman cannot wait to become a homeowner for the first time as she plans to purchase a house with some of her new-found fortune. She also plans to buy her sister a house, donate to the Humane Society, and buy her son a new car to drive when he returns from serving his country overseas.
The winning ticket was sold by Admiral Petroleum Co #13; located at 2222 W. Main St. in Lowell.
