Mom Accidentally Buys Lottery Ticket, Wins $14 Million
Accidentally spending $1 more than usual on Lotto Tickets paid off for a mother of four sons in Orange County to the tune of $14 million.
Thuan Le bought her winning SuperLotto Plus last week at a Mission Viejo, Calif., CVS (map), where she typically buys $4 worth of Powerball tickets and $1 on a SuperLotto Plus ticket.
When Le noticed she accidentally put $6 into the self-service machine, she took her chances on an extra - would-be winning - SuperLotto Plus ticket.
Le checked the winning ticket with her friend. After ticking off the matching numbers one by one, Le was so excited, she ran screaming from the store, according to a news release from California Lottery.
A single mother of four sons, Le said she plans to use her winnings to buy a house, travel and visit her parents in Vietnam.
