OWINGSVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56) — A Kentucky man is the lottery’s latest big winner after he bought a scratch-off worth $777,000.

Kentucky Lottery officials said the Owingsville man, who wished to remain anonymous, recently stopped at Liberty Mart 3 in Owingsville to grab breakfast when he purchased a $20 Limited Edition scratch-off.

“I got to looking at it (prize amount) when I first thought I won seven thousand. I scratched further and further until I saw $777,000. I was so nervous. The more I looked at it the more nervous I got,” he told lottery officials. 

The winner’s wife said the winnings, estimated to be $550,000 after taxes, will be life-changing but did not state their plans for the money.
