Store clerk sells herself winning $1-million lottery ticket

clerkDONIPHAN, MO – Mary Jane Hart of Missouri holds down two part-time jobs. One of them is at a convenience store where she sells beer, sodas, and lottery tickets.

Last week, she sold herself a chance at the $600 million Powerball drawing, and ended up a million dollars richer.

She used the numbers of NASCAR drivers to fill out her Powerball ticket, which she checked only after getting a call from work.

“I’ve always wanted to win a jackpot so that I could go to way more NASCAR races than I go to, which is a lot,” says Hart.

She matched every number but the Powerball.

“Someone had called me and told me that there was a winning ticket sold at the store, so I went to the convenience store at Poplar Bluff and checked my ticket and it said I was a winner.”

Hart plans to help out her son and take a trip to Hawaii. She also is keeping her two jobs, and plans to keep playing the lottery just to prove that lightening can strike twice.
