We all run out to get our tickets when the lottery jackpots get high.

We figure we’ll take a chance and maybe our couple dollars will turn into something we always dreamed of; even if it’s only the consolation prize of a few thousand or a couple dollars for getting some of the numbers.

Well one grandmother, Maria Carreiro, 51, of Toronto, thought she had won $40,000 in Ontario’s lottery, until she shared the news with her daughter.

The Portuguese immigrant’s daughter looked it up on the computer and found that her mom had made a small error, according to CNN International. Carreiro said her daughter said to her: ” ‘Mommy, you’re $40 million richer” before she ran off barefoot to the store.

  1. I’m so happy for her. As her daughter stated, her dad works so hard and those are the people that you love to see win those huge jackpots, not the already rich folks!
