MD Man Wins 50K Jackpot after Clerk's Mistake

A man in Maryland won a $50,000 Powerball jackpot earlier this month due  to a clerk’s mistake. According to Maryland Lottery officials, the  27-year-old Denton man was shopping at his local Weis Markets on August 9  when he asked the clerk for one Mega Millions ticket and a Powerball  ticket. "I only asked for one ticket each for one game of Mega Millions  and Powerball," the winner explains. "The cashier gave me two games on  each ticket. I am grateful she did as the second game on my Powerball  ticket was the winning one." The winner and his wife plan to share their  newfound wealth and to use some of the money “to purchase [their] home  in the near future.”
