ATLANTA (AP) - Stephen Cooke's mistake is turning out doubly lucky.
When he bought some lottery tickets, Cooke didn't realize he got two with the same numbers. Sure enough, those two tickets are winners in the multi-state Mega Millions game.
The Roswell, Ga., man's share is worth more than $26.5 million.
Cooke only noticed that two of his tickets were winners when he went to claim the jackpot on one.
