(Newser) – Buying a winning lottery ticket is luck most of us only dream of having. Accidentally buying a second ticket which is also a winner? That's just rubbing it in. An Australian woman managed this incredibly fortunate feat last weekend, winning a grand total of around $900,000 USD between the ticket she meant to buy and the one she didn't, the Age reports. "I buy a TattsLotto ticket every week, and I just forgot that I'd already bought one for the weekend when I went to another shop to buy the second one," she says. "Half of that [$900,000] will go straight towards the mortgage. ... I guess it's a good thing we won twice so there's some prize money left over. It will be such a relief to be debt-free."
