I pulled them up on the Lottery app, and right when I saw them I knew I won," Ousley said. I started hyperventilating because I was so excited.Ousley said she quickly realized that making a mistake had led her to the prize.I play the same set of numbers every day, which are a combination of my kids birth dates and ages. One of them just had a birthday and I forgot to switch the number '19' to '20,' but it ended up paying off! she said.The winner said she is planning to use her winnings to buy a house.It is awesome to such win a big prize, I feel so blessed, Ousley said.
