An Atchison woman has claimed a top prize on the Kansas Lottery’s $5 Lucky 7s Tripler ticket! While waiting for her grandmother to finish treatment in an Overland Park clinic, Jessica Martin decided to visit a small convenience store to grab her usual bunch of lottery tickets. Her method paid off with a $27,777 win!
“I always buy 16 tickets at a time of the same game because I feel like my odds of winning are better,” Martin revealed. “It was the 11th ticket I scratched that showed the $27,777!”
At first, Martin thought she had won only $2,000, but her husband soon inspected the ticket and saw she really won the top prize on the Lucky 7s Tripler ticket!
“I couldn’t believe it when he said I had won $27,777! I probably screamed and yelled for a good 30 minutes,” she laughed.
Martin’s family was ecstatic to hear about her win because Martin travels quite a bit bringing her grandmother to Overland Park from Atchison for health treatments.
“The money is going toward a new car that is safer and more reliable,” she said. “This win is a huge blessing for us.”
The winning ticket was sold at H & R Enterprise Inc. at 8770 Nieman Road in Overland Park. There is still one $27,777 top prize left in the $5 Lucky 7s Tripler instant scratch game, as well as thousands in other prizes!
