BUFFALO, N.Y. – A man hit it big with the scratch off by mistake.

Jerry Kajfasz purchased seven scratch-off tickets, but the clerk accidentally gave him eight. He returned the extra one.

But after he won $20 from those seven tickets, he went right back and bought the eighth ticket, which turned out to be a winner worth $10 million.

Kajfasz will get the money in payments over the next 20 years. He says after this win he’s going to retire and share the money with his family.
