Thuan Le — a single mother who lives in California — accidentally entered an extra dollar in an automated lottery machine, Opposing Views reports.

Le usually buys $5 worth of lottery tickets at the Mission Viejo, Calif. drugstore machine. However, on this occasion she put in $6 and decided to use the extra dollar on one more SuperLotto Plus ticket. That’s the one that won her millions.

“Thuan Le is a hardworking single mother of four sons. She is also very excitable. In fact, when she ran her SuperLotto Plus ticket through the terminal and realized she had won a $14 million jackpot, she ran screaming out of the store,” said the California Lottery in a statement.

For her part, Le plans to buy a house and visit her parents in Vietnam.
