Kokomo couple turns $5 into $77,777

Shellie Hillis of Kokomo was sitting in the passenger seat of her husband’s car when she scratched off a Hoosier Lottery ticket worth $77,777. All she could do was say the words “seventy-seven thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven” over and over. “It’s a lot to take in.  It’s just unreal,” said Hillis. “Unreal.” But it was real. Hillis and her husband claimed her very real winnings Thursday at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis. Read more of Shellie's story here.
