Man Buys Wrong Lottery Ticket, Wins $165 Million



As the Powerball approaches a $1.4 billion jackpot, one man is happy he mistakenly purchased a Mega Millions ticket instead. The unidentified man bought the ticket at Willowbrook Deli on Staten Island, N.Y. The winning numbers were 11, 39, 51, 57, and 75, with the cash value of the prize coming out to $101 million. His mistake earned him a cool $165 million.

Staten Island has been the home of 34 lottery-winning millionaires since 2010. The Powerball jackpot is expected to approach a record $1.4 billion this week, a life-changing chunk of change for a supremely lucky winner.
