Dublin planner draws lucky $777,777 ticket

Michael Renfroe’s life changed today during his trip to Neighbors, 1505 Bellevue Road, Dublin. He went to buy a bag of ice and also purchased a Super Lucky 7’s ticket.

Renfroe, 46, an architectural planner from Dublin, won the top prize — $777,777 — playing the Georgia Lottery instant game, according to a news release from lottery officials.

“It took a minute to sink in,” he said in the release. “I had jelly legs walking back to my car. I went straight home.”

Renfroe, who has two children with his wife Julie, said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.
