Iowa man wins $1 million in lottery after cashier made 'mistake'
Mega Millions Equals Mega Tax?

An Iowa man says that a cashier's "mistake" led to him winning $1 million in the Iowa Mega Millions lottery.
Josh Buster, 40, said that when he asked a West Burlington convenience store clerk for five easy-pick plays for Friday night's Mega Millions drawing, he initially received only one play from the lottery terminal.
The clerk then asked Buster if the four other plays could be issued on a separate ticket.
"I feel like that changed the numbers that I would have gotten if he had put them all on one instead of making that mistake," Buster said.
