He meant to buy a different ticket but didn't have his glasses on
A Connecticut man won $30,000 last week when he accidentally bought the wrong lottery ticket.
Bob Sabo didn’t want to wait in line at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, Conn. to buy his lottery ticket, so he decided to purchase one from the lottery vending machine. He intended to buy two $20 tickets, but since he didn’t have his glasses on, he accidentally purchased one $30 ticket.
“When I got home and scratched the 30X ticket, I couldn’t believe it—we won $30,000. Winning the way we did was a very freaky thing!” Sabo told the CT Lottery.
Don’t we all wish we made mistakes like that.
