Pennsylvania Woman Doubles Her Luck With Silver 7sMonday, July 16th, 2012
Wins More Than $15,000 Playing Silver 7s
A scratch-off player visiting Lottery headquarters today got the surprise of her life – the second such surprise in two days. Her $7,777 win, she found out, would be doubled, thanks to a special promotion underway through the end of July.
The Littlestown, Pennsylvania resident who is a newcomer to scratch-offs, having tried her first one just last week, won Silver 7’s top prize yesterday. She’d decided to try her luck with a scratch-off when her boyfriend stopped at a local store for ice cream. “The Silver 7s ticket caught my eye when I walked up to the Lottery vending machine,” she told officials. Excited at what she thought was a $1,000 win, she was floored when her boyfriend, a Lottery veteran, told her she’d won much more.
