Glinda Salgado bought a Megamillions ticket at the Elden Market & Deli, which her family owns, and promptly forgot about it. Perhaps like most people, she would make an occasional bet but never really believed she would win. So much so that when it was announced that a ticket which won a million dollars was sold at her store, she was excited but never thought it was her ticket.
Well, she was wrong on two counts. First, her ticket was the big winner, and second, since she paid an extra dollar for the megaplier option, she had actually won $3 million.
She used four numbers she considered lucky and two at random. Five of the numbers she chose matched those drawn; she only missed the mega number. No word yet on what she plans to use the money for.
