EDGEWATER, N.J. (CBS) – New Jersey mother wins $5 million after she was accidentally given a “Set For Life” ticket.
Oksana Zaharov, 46, of Edgewater asked for a $1 scratch-off from a store in Manhattan, but was accidentally handed a $10 “Set For Life” ticket.
That mistake turned out to be life changing once she realized the ticket was worth $5 million.
Zaharov says she’s excited to be able to give her two kids a debt-free college education.
