    NJ Man Wins $1M Cash4Life Thanks to Lottery Mistake

    FILE - That ticket proved to be the winner, as it matched the five numbers drawn but not the cash ball.

    A mistakenly sold lottery ticket has earned a New Jersey couple $1 million.

    State lottery officials say 70-year-old Dante Castillo usually picks his own numbers. But when the Manchester man bought some tickets for last Thursday's Cash4Life jackpot at a convenience store in Lakewood, the clerk accidentally sold him one Quick Pick ticket.

    That ticket proved to be the winner, as it matched the five numbers drawn but not the cash ball.

    Castillo and his wife had the option of taking the $1 million prize or getting $1,000 a week for life. The convenience store will receive a $10,000 bonus check from lottery officials for selling the winning ticket.
