A store clerk at Wolfe’s Huff and Puff Mini-Mart, New Lexington, Ohio, punched in the Lotto numbers for a customer, however, she made a mistake, the customer wanted a “kicker” number, an extra number that multiplies winning if it is selected along with the other numbers and clerk Naomi Mauller forgot to enter the Kicker.

Mauller reprinted the ticket with the correct numbers and she bought the ticket she messed up on as per lotto rules, tickets can not be changed once printed.


Now get this, BOTH tickets were winners! The customer’s ticket hit minus the Kicker number for a cool $250,000 and since Mauller had bought the ticket with the same numbers, she also won $250,000!

“I was shocked,” Mauller said. “Just plain shocked, and happy.”
