A woman from Virginia, USA, is making headlines all over the world after a simple mistake that she made when buying lottery helped her win the lottery.

Betty Wong of McLean, Virginia, won 2 million in lottery because of a mistake that she made while buying her lottery tickets online.

I thought I misread the numbers, so I woke up my husband.
