Lisa Priola took a shot at the new $10 scratch off card that had just come out.
And she was extremely glad the assistant had suggested it when it turned out to be a $200,000 winner.
Things took a small turn for the weird however when Lisa felt so overwhelmed at having won, she asked her mother to claim the prize on her behalf.
But for a short time her prize was in jeopardy as the lottery company checks revealed that Lisa was actually the prize and not her mother Grace who was claiming it.
Things were eventually sorted out though, and thankfully Lisa has now banked her winnings – although next time she might be braver about claiming herself.
