A Colorado man who works in the same building in Denver as the state lottery office decided to cash in a $3 winning ticket and ended up making a “mistake” that won him 30-grand. John M. tells Colorado Lottery officials that when his computer went on the fritz, he decided to take a break and walk over to claim his $3 prize.
He says he was planning to just buy another ticket with his three bucks but he made an error when using the lottery ticket vending machine and accidentally bought a Nest Egg Scramble scratch-off ticket instead. Well, that little “mistake” ended up being in his favor because he won a $30,000 jackpot on that scratcher. Wish all our errors could be that lucky!
