"I wasn't paying attention when I was selecting the ticket . It was a fluke," he told lottery officials.

The man said he is still processing the win and did not specify how he will use his winnings.

"The fact that it happened at all is pretty crazy. It hasn't sunken in yet," he continued.

The Hot 7s scratch-off was launched in February and has a grand prize of $777, 777.
