Newspaper Misprint Is Almost A Costly Mistake
You could WIN MILLIONS playing FreeLotto. And its Grand Prize odds are better than Powerball!
When Debra Revis, of Colorado, checked the Daily Sentinel to see if her lottery numbers had won, she had no idea there had been a misprint. She saw that 5 of her numbers matched the 6 in the paper, so she called her son to find out if there was a prize for matching 5 numbers. Her son, Sheldon Revis, went online to the Colorado Lottery’s website and told her that the prize for 5 of 6 numbers was $498. Out of curiosity, he asked her to read out the numbers she had played, and when she read him the final number, he told her that all six matched, and that she had actually won the jackpot! They were both shocked.
Revis chose to take the lump sum payment of $2.1 million before taxes. She plans to continue working as a hotel manager and save the money for retirement. Although it was nearly a very costly mistake, Revis says she isn’t upset about it. The Daily Sentinel even called to apologize for the misprint.
