Woman Accidentally Wins $1M International Lotto Prize

A woman from Virginia has recently won $1 million on the lottery by accident. The lucky winner was initially just demonstrating to her friend how to play the lottery when she actually ended up winning!


The winner’s name is Merry Thomas and she took her friend Julie to a store in Fredericksburg, where she worked, where she demonstrated to her friend how to use the self-service machine to play a lottery ticket and check whether it was a winner or not. 

Merry’s friend Julie ended up winning $12. But then when it came time for Merry to check her ticket, it turned out to be $1 million. Merry couldn't believe what she was seeing.

“I’ve been freaking out since then! Right in front of my eyes, I saw this woman turn into a puddle,” explained Julie. Merry admitted that she has been freaking out since the news dawned on her that she was an instant millionaire completely by accident. 

Merry bought her ticket after an overnight shift, according to Virginia lottery officials. Merry’s big win was the top prize in the 20X Money Game. She chose the cash option over the 30-year annuity. 

As yet she has no special plans on how she wants to spend her winnings. “I just feel so fortunate. It’s unbelievable what’s happened!” exclaimed Merry. 

The store that sold Merry’s winning ticket will be receiving a bonus of $10,000 from the Virginia Lottery. A spokesman from the Virginia lottery, John Hagerty, said that the string of good luck in southern Stafford “just goes to show that it can happen at any time and in any place.”
