US woman wins US$25 million after grocery store cashier sells her the wrong ticket by mistake

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Lottery officials say a store clerk's mistake led to a woman who has been searching for a job to win US$25 million (S$32.7 million). The lottery says 44-year-old Kathy Scruggs matched all of the winning numbers in the Sept. 14 multistate Powerball drawing. She said she had requested a Mega Millions ticket but wound up with that and the Powerball ticket and accepted both of them. Ms Scruggs claimed her prize on Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta. Ms Scruggs said she selected the cash option and will receive US$15,124,017 before taxes. Ms Scruggs, who's been looking for a job after a seasonal job ended last spring, now plans to buy a car, travel, and help her family and others.
