I thought you couldn't 'sell yourself' the winning ticket but, oh, well, congrats to her.

I love this story - the clerk did exactly what she should have done because the Mega Million tickets cannot be voided so she paid for her mistake - nice to see someone come out on top for doing the right thing. And, because it wasn't for the jackpot it wasn't a shared win, both ticket holders received the full amount. If the guy had followed lottery superstition he would have kept the incorrect ticket and both himself a second one and ended up with a half million ...
