Lucky lottery mistake leads NY man to $10M jackpot

Depew N.Y. (AP) - A store clerk's mistake has paid off big for a Western New York man.       

Jerry Kajfasz, 53, of Lancaster, won a $10 million jackpot from a $20 scratch-off ticket he purchased last month at a suburban Buffalo store.      

He said he bought seven scratch-off tickets but the clerk nearly handed him an eighth one costing $20. Kajfasz caught the mistake and handed it back.         

After winning a total of $25 from the tickets, he went back inside the store and used the winnings to buy the same $20 scratch-off ticket the clerk had almost given to him by mistake.           

That Win for Life Spectacular ticket wound up being a winner with a guaranteed minimum jackpot of $10 million.      

Kajfasz has already quit his printing job.
