Single Mum is an Accidental Lotto Winner

A single mother of four, who accidentally purchased an extra California Lottery ticket from a lottery vending machine, got the surprise of her life when her $1 overspend netted her a $14 million win.

The lucky mum, who has yet to be identified, usually spends $4 on Powerball tickets and one Super Lotto ticket, but accidentally dropped an extra dollar into the machine. When she scanned her extra ticket and realized how profitable her mistake had been she was so excited she ran out of the store in hysterics.

She now plans to buy a new house and spend some of the money on travel.
