Man gets 'wrong' lottery ticket, wins $1M
Sat, 18 Aug 2012 4:11p.m.
When a store clerk gave a Massachusetts, United States man a different kind of scratch-off lottery ticket than he asked for, he didn't make a big deal about the mistake; he said he just "rolled with it".
It was a good decision: He won US$1 million.
Richard Brown of Taunton said he went into Gulf Taunton recently and asked for a US$5 "Blue Ice 7s" ticket, but the clerk was distracted and instead gave him a "Sizzlin 7s" ticket.
Brown selected the cash option on the prize and received a one-time lump sum payment of about US$430,000 after taxes. He plans to use the money for a new roof on his home and to take a trip to San Francisco.
The store gets a US$10,000 commission.
