A woman from South Carolina was sold the wrong scratch off ticket when she went to her local lottery retailer, but it turned out to be a fortuitous mistake.

The lottery player, who remained anonymous when she claimed her $250,000 scratch off prize, agreed to buy the ticket that the store clerk had prepared for her, even though it wasn’t the one that she’d asked for when she went into the South Carolina convenience store. Fortunately, she was rewarded for her kindness and the wrong ticket was actually just the right one, as she won $250,000. A woman from New Jersey was also in the same predicament when a cashier mistakenly handed her the wrong lottery ticket, but she ended up winning $5 million.

The winning scratch off ticket was purchased from Red Robin Foods on Woodruff Road in Greenville County, South Carolina, and the lucky woman beat odds of 1 in 660,000 to win her $250,000 prize. The ‘7’ scratch off game that the Greenville woman ended up buying also worked out well for the red Robin Foods store, as it received a bonus worth $2,500 from the South Carolina Education Lottery as a reward for selling the winning ticket. Recently another South Carolina lottery player won $2 million on the Powerball lottery, and he told lottery officials that he took some convincing before he could believe that he’d really won.

Nearby in North Carolina, a lottery winner proved their incredible lucky streak by winning big on the North Carolina Education Lottery and surviving a helicopter crash. However, despite the fortuitous events that led to her rightful scratch off win, the South Carolina woman is not going to keep her winnings. “I’m going to give to my church and then give back to the community,” the lucky winner said, expressing her kindness in many ways. “As for me, I’m good.”

A recent winner of the Canadian Lotto 649, a man from Toronto vowed to pay forward his $24.5 million fortune by looking after the younger generations of his family, while another recent Canadian lottery winner gave away all of her $1,000 a week for life windfall to a charity which she set up to help homeless people across Québec.
