Store Clerk Wins Powerball Prize On Mistaken Ticket

.A convenience store clerk in Conover, NC who paid for a Powerball ticket that a customer didn't want now is 200-thousand dollars richer.

Wayburn Allen mistakenly rang up two tickets for a customer Tuesday, who only wanted one ticket. So Wayburn paid for the ticket and took it home, discovering the next day that her numbers matched for the prize.

The woman who didn't want the extra ticket also won 200-thousand dollars, so the pair hugged when they came to the state lottery office to get their winnings.
