When Richard Brown walked into a Valero gas station Monday morning in Taunton, Mass., it was a routine visit. Brown dropped by on occasion to purchase scratch tickets, and when he stopped in on this day he asked manager Brian Salinas for his usual $5 Blue Ice 7s ticket. But Salinas was distracted by stocking cigarettes and accidentally gave Brown a Sizzlin' 7s ticket. Brown didn't fuss over the mistake -- good thing, because his chill attitude won him $1 million. Salinas' flub also paid off, as the store will receive a $10,000 commission. Lottery officials said Brown took a lump sum payment, coming to $650,000 before taxes.
LUCKY GUY HUH?
