    PartyCongrat's to Kathy Scruggs on her win, enjoy it.  I've actually purchased and win off tickets other players have told the retailer some was wrong with them.

          This is a heartwarming story. It seems that this winner is a generous woman. She is first thinking of her mother and grandmother as well as the homeless. Have you noticed the most generous people are those who tend to win big. That ticket was not a mistake, it was meant for her and the store clerk is the angel who sold it to her. Be happy for this winner. Negativity only attracts more negativity. I am happy for her and those she will benefit. Good things come to those who wait.

              Congratulations to this lady.  She has been truly blessed.  It's always good to hear stories like these.  Considering what her situation was, it's good to hear that she will be helping others who truly need it. Blue Angel

               

              It's always an unexpected blessing when someone wins this way.  I've had this happen to me twice with mistake tickets.  Once for an extra $250 and another for an extra $320.  It's always good to check tickets when purchasing as we know the opposite could happen.

                  I think it may have been OJ's lawyer, Johnny Cochrane, who once said:

                  "If the ticket's a mistake - it's the ticket you must take."

                  Or maybe it was me who said that, I don't remember.

                  I Agree!

                  Aye rdgrnr, among the old pros there is a practice here @ gambling ground zero that if a ticket writer makes a mistake  with racing/sports book at keno counter accept it & let it ride >>>>>

                  Who knows ????

                      Congratulations!!!!   It was certainly meant for Ms. Scruggs to be there at that particular moment and for the clerk to do exactly what she did at that moment also!   What is it called?  Karma? 

                      I sincerely hope Ms. Scruggs shares some of her winnings with the clerk who gave her the winning ticket.  I believe someone else in this thread mentioned this as well as it wasn't mentioned in the article.

                      Keep on believing and having positive thoughts about yourself and it will happen!!

                          Congratulations to Ms. ScruggsHurray!

                          I love reading about this kind of lottery winner. The fact that the ticket was a mistake reminds me of NY prison guard Garina Fearon who went to buy a PB ticket and ended up with a $54 million Mega Millions winner!

                          Me too!

                            I also buy the mistake tickets, and hope I get to come back and reward the cashier for the mistake. Hasn't happened yet.

                            Helping needy with dental. I think that's a wonderful idea.

                            Wow, congratulations Kathy. 

                            Kathy, I hope that you really do find a way to help the needy with DENTAL work getting done.  I've never heard a jackpot winner speaking of this wonderfully helpful idea (after all, it's good for folks to be able to eat on both sides of their mouth, pain and debris-sticking free). Certainly, most dental care is much lower than medical ... and majority of dentists are charging a huge markup for their labor and material rates during this past decade! 

                            Would be great, Kathy, if you could create a foundation (or fund an existing one and become somewhat active monthly in expanding it), and work with a couple of advanced dentists (negotiated bottom rates for oral surgery, root canals, high-noble metal molar crowns, thrice-yearly deep cleanings, and large cavity fillings) in each of the largest metro areas in each state of our country ... adding a new state each year.

                            Party

                            Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

                              I once bought a bunch of mistake tickets and won nothing. There's nothing special about mistake tickets, only that winning on them makes news juicier

                              I am happy for Ms Scruggs and hope she uses that money to bring joy to her family for a long time.

                              That money's gone fo ever
