A store clerk's error resulted in a Georgia player’s $25 million lottery win! Kathy Scruggs, 44, matched all of the winning numbers in the Sept. 14 Powerball drawing after trying to purchase a Mega Millions ticket.
"I asked for a Mega Millions ticket, and the lady gave me a Powerball ticket," she explained. "I just took it anyway. So I bought Powerball and Mega Millions."
Many congrats to this lucky lady on her good fortune!
