Lotto mistake $14M: Mistake Turns Women Instant millionaire

Lotto mistake $14M: Mistake Turns Women Instant millionaire, Single mother-of-four accidentally put an extra dollar in a self-service Lotto and was rewarded big time after she won a $14 million jackpot, NBC reported today.

Thuan Le, of Santa Ana, Calif., bought $4 worth of Powerball tickets from CVS last Wednesday, as she regularly does every week. After Le noticed she accidentally put $6 into the self-service machine, she took her chances on an extra SuperLotto Plus ticket.

With the extra buck, Le purchased an extra ticket that, unbeknownst to her, would turn her into an instant multi-millionaire.

Le forgot to check the tickets to see if they were winners until her friend reminded her. When she realized they all matched, that is when she started screaming.

“We thought she was joking,” her son told California Lottery officials. “But we thought would she really joke like this? My older brother said, ‘Yes, she would.”

To the shock and surprise of Le’s four sons, their mother was not kidding. After first “screaming,” when she realized she had the matching numbers, Le drove to the California Lottery’s Santa Ana District Office to claim her huge prize.

Le, whose name was released as required by California law, chose not to have her photo or other information publicly released. So far, attempts to reach her have not been successful.

Le plans to use her lotto winnings to, “buy a house, travel, and visit her parents in Vietnam,” according to a lottery news release.

The CVS where she purchased her lucky ticket will benefit from a $70,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. A representative for CVS also declined to comment.
