A woman who accidentally received the wrong lottery ticket from a cashier and decided to buy it anyway made the right move. Oksana Zaharov, 46, from Edgewater, New Jersey, was shopping in Manhattan when she asked a clerk for a $1 New York Lottery scratch-off ticket. Instead, the man unwittingly handed her a $10 Set For Life ticket. Zaharov noticed the mistake. “When the clerk handed me the wrong ticket I felt bad, so I decided to just go ahead and buy it,” the mother of two said in a press release. “I actually used the ticket as a bookmark for a couple weeks before I decided to scratch it.” Zaharov won $5 million to be distributed over 20 years, plus annual net sums of $172,068 after that for the rest of her life. Her stroke of luck went viral on Tuesday as news outlets learned of it.
