A New Yorker won $10 million lottery jackpot following a convenience store clerk’s mistake.
Jerry Kajfasz 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. Jerry Kajfasz, 53, caught the mistake and handed it back.
After winning a total of $25 from the tickets, Jerry Kajfasz 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.
Jerry Kajfasz has already quit his printing job.
