Store Mistake Leads to NY Man Hitting $10M Jackpot

 

 

DEPEW, N.Y. February 26, 2014 (AP)
 
A convenience store clerk's mistake has paid off in a big way for a western New York man.

Fifty-three-year-old Jerry Kajfasz (KYE'-fahzh) of Lancaster won a $10 million jackpot from a $20 scratch-off ticket he purchased last month at a suburban Buffalo store.

He tells local media outlets he bought seven scratch-off tickets but the clerk nearly handed him an eighth one costing $20. Kajfasz caught the mistake and handed it back.

After winning a total of $25 from the tickets, he went back inside the store and used the winnings to buy the same $20 scratch-off ticket the clerk had almost given to him by mistake.

That Win for Life Spectacular ticket wound up being a winner with a guaranteed minimum jackpot of $10 million.

Kajfasz has already quit his printing job.

      Karma is real. Good story Jani Norman. I am not sure if I could ever buy 1 $20 ticket leave alone 7 of them so this can never be my story. I am happy for Mr Kajfasz

      That money's gone fo ever

        Good for him. Sounded like a more serious buyer purchasing 7 tickets at once.

        2014 Highest Winner: $500
