A Woman 'accidentally' won $10 million after she hit a wrong button!!

A Los Angeles-area woman is $10 million richer after she pressed the wrong button on a lottery scratch-off vending machine, according to the California State Lottery.

Perhaps it was the slip-up of good luck that LaQuedra Edwards needed.

The incident happened in November at a Vons Supermarket in Los Angeles County. Edwards said "some rude person" bumped into her as she was making her lottery scratch-off ticket selection, causing her to push another button on the machine.

She selected a $30 ticket when she normally would've gotten more of the cheaper selections, she told the lottery service.

But her irritation in the mix-up didn't last long. Edwards was in her car when she made the discovery.

"I almost crashed my car," Edwards joked. "I pulled over, looked at it again and again, scanned it with my (California Lottery mobile) app, and I just kept thinking, 'This can't be right.'"

But she had won the top prize for the scratch-off ticket: A cool $10 million.

"I’m still in shock. All I remember saying once I found out how much I just won was, ‘I’m rich!'" Edwards told the lottery.

She said she plans to buy a house and start a nonprofit organization with her winnings.
