Elizabeth Johnson of North Carolina won two million dollars by purchasing a coupon for a different draw than she wanted for the American number game. The woman was a minute late to submit her ticket, causing her to enter her ticket on another day of the lottery.
The happy turn of fate began on Wednesday, May 19, when a woman submitted her lottery ticket at the end of her work day, according to the North Carolina Education Lottery announcement. Or at least she thought. In fact, his coupon returned a minute late.
However, the woman’s misfortune soon turned to happiness. During the Saturday draw on May 22, the numbers he selected on Wednesday correspond to those drawn.
– It was a shock. When I got the news of the win, I thought, “I haven’t even played today,” Johnson said, quoting the release.
His lucky three-dollar ticket matched the numbers on five white balls and guaranteed him $ 1 million in the May 22 draw. The woman’s gift doubled to 2 million when 2x multiplied. The odds of matching all five white balls are 1 in 11.6 million.
Johnson, who works as a translator, picked up the prize at the Lottery headquarters in Raleigh last Thursday. The award after his final tax was $ 1.415 million.
The woman said she would buy a house for the money she won and go on vacation. As he adds, his children dream of a trip to Disneyland.
