Store Clerk’s Mistake Means $10 Million Lottery Win For Customer

DEPEW, N.Y. (February 26, 2014) A convenience store clerk's mistake paid off in a big way for Jerry Kajfasz, 53, of Lancaster N.Y., who a $10 million jackpot from a $20 scratch-off ticket he purchased last month at a suburban Buffalo store.

He said he bought seven scratch-off tickets but the clerk nearly handed him an eighth one that cost $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 almost gave to him by mistake and the 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.
