Woman Wins $1000 a Month for Life Off Free Lotto Ticket

A lucky New Jersey woman who bought a lottery ticket with a  buy-one-get-one free coupon she clipped from a newspaper ended up  winning a big prize. The Star-Ledger reports that Carole Halleran’s  ticket for the April 19 drawing matched five numbers but not the Cash  Ball--meaning it's worth $1,000 a week for life or the cash option of $1  million. She chose the cash option. Halleran found out she’d won the  prize after her daughter called to tell her the winning ticket was sold  at her local supermarket, and she decided to check her tickets.  According to officials, the odds of winning the second-prize with a $2  ticket are 7,282,016 to 1.
