A Woman Turns Out To Be the Serendipitous Winner of $ 5 million. A woman based in New Jersey says that she is getting richer by $ 5 million. Purchasing a New York Lottery ticket is turning out to be a life-changing experience for her. A woman hailing from New Jersey has a wrong scratch card ticket that turned out to be a winning slip. Oksana Zaharov, 56 from Edgewater in New Jersey revealed to officials at the New York Lottery office. It turns out to be a disastrous situation for her.
Oksana is upset that she actually got the wrong ticket. She is looking for the $1 scratch-off card ticket. The clerk at Trisha Convenience-a lottery dealer in Manhattan has given her the wrong scratch card. She said that she could not figure out why the clerk dispensed a ‘Set for Life’ ticket costing $10. She is further in an embarrassing situation. It is also a surprising moment for her. She has a scratch card but she always had a ticket in her mind. Before the draw was held, she used the card for bookmarking.
Two weeks later, she went ahead and scratched the ticket in a cursory manner, firm in the belief that she may not win a single dollar. At one point in time, she was certain that she had bought a bogus ticket. She went on record by saying that she had never won anything in her life, let alone a lottery.
It was only when he turned up at the New York Lottery office with the ticket that she realized that the token was genuine. Her joy knew no bounds when she learnt that she had won a $ 5 million purse. It took a long time before she could come to terms with the fact that she had actually won a massive lottery prize. Following the win, Oksana was finalizing plans for a trip to the Bahamas with her family. At the same time, she was seriously thinking about putting away a neat sum for her children’s education.
