The Richburg man and his wife told South Carolina Education Lottery officials they don't normally play the lottery, but they won $10 on a ticket they received as a Christmas gift and used the money to buy another ticket, which was also a winner.The couple kept their winning streak going until the man stopped for take-out and bought a Money to the Max scratch-off that turned out to be a $250,000 winner.

The man had a difficult time convincing his wife the win was real, and for good reason -- he had previously pranked her with a fake winning ticket."I grabbed his face with both my hands and made him look me the eye," the wife recalled. "I asked, 'Are you messing with me?'The couple said their win came at just the right time.

"This is a life changer," said the wife. "Especially in these times."An Australian man who scored a lottery jackpot of nearly $800,000 said he bought his ticket by mistake while attempting to play a different drawing.

The Hobart, Tasmania, man told The Lott officials that he had meant to buy a different ticket when he visited Sandy Bay Lotteries.I actually wanted to play the Superdraw this weekend but accidentally bought an entry into last weekend's TattsLotto draw by mistake," he said. "So it's a mistake that led me to have this winning entry, but I'm very happy with that mistake!"

The man, who wanted to remain anonymous, collected a Division One prize of $785,303."Yesterday, I checked my ticket on my phone. I didn't know what to think. I thought it was a joke at first. Even now, I'm not so sure. I'm a bit overwhelmed," he said.

The winner said he is making plans for his prize money."I can't wait to clear the mortgage, then after that, we'll see. When we're allowed to go out, we'll go out and celebrate too," he said.
