Talk about a run of luck (we should all be so lucky)….

Meet Mr. Earl Fritz, 62, of Augusta, Ga. One week he wins $1,000 playing the scratch game “Extreme Green.”

Then, one week later, it’s back to scratching…and he won $777,777 playing “Super 7s.”

“I felt lucky last week when I cashe in a $1,000 win,” he told officials at the Ga. Lottery.

“Now I feel a little luckier.”


Fritz bought his ticket at Ms. Carolyn’s, in Augusta…and then began to scratch, he said.

I didn’t have my glasses on. It looked like a blur.”

Fritz, a carpenter,and his wife Faye have no immediate plans for either prize.
