What a difference a dollar makes. An Orange County woman accidentally put an extra dollar in the California Lottery machine and it paid off.

Thuan Le of Santa Ana meant to buy two Powerball tickets and one SuperLotto ticket at a CVS Pharmacy store last week.

But she accidentally put in an extra dollar and got a second SuperLotto ticket. That one was a $14-million winner.

Le is a single mother with four sons. She said she plans to use her winnings to buy a house and travel.
