Lottery Winner Thought He Won $10k. He Actually Won $1 Million!

You know, some guys have all the luck.

Edward Boudreau, a school bus driver from Waltham, Massachusetts, thought it was his lucky day when he scratched off a lottery ticket to find a $10,000 prize.

But when he showed up to claim the prize, he learned that his ticket was worth 100 times that prize - a cool million dollars.

So while winning $10,000 is a big deal and would put a smile on the faces of most people, the jump to a million-dollar jackpot is a life-changer.

After taxes, Edward took home $650,000 -- which is enough for him to walk away from his job and never drive another school bus again.
