A store cashier’s mistake has resulted in one lucky American woman taking home $25 million Dollars on the American Powerball lottery!
With some of the biggest lotto results and winnings in history, the USA Powerball is no stranger to big jackpots and media attention.
In the news once again, the USA Powerball has made one lucky American woman very happy after she selected the lotto winning numbers. This is a story with a twist though, because technically her winning Powerball ticket is the result of a mistake.
44 year old Kathy Scruggs from Atlanta, Georgia matched all 6 of the American Powerball numbers drawn on the 14th September to win herself a very hefty $25 million jackpot. Kathy must be thanking both her lucky stars AND the store clerk who sold her the winning Powerball ticket.
Kathy originally entered the store to purchase a Megamillions lottery ticket only but the cashier gave her a Megamillions AND a Powerball ticket by mistake. Believing it was fate, Kathy accepted the Powerball ticket that she had been given as well. The Powerball ticket that she had been mistakenly issued went on to win Kathy a $25 million Dollar jackpot!
Wow, talk about a lucky mistake? What would you have done if you had been given a lottery ticket that you didn’t intend on purchasing? Would you have kept it?
This highlights some interesting points:
• No one ever knows when or how luck will strike in their life.
• Not all mistakes are bad.
• There is value in playing more than one lottery at a time.

Lucky American Powerball winner, Kathy Scruggs, was un-employed at the time of winning the jackpot so her win couldn’t have come at a better time for her. Kathy says that she is going to be purchasing a new car, travelling and helping her friends and family. It is not clear if she will be giving any of the money to the store clerk who accidently issued her the Powerball ticket.
