MOST spouses would sigh if their other half sent them to the store for some beers.
But this lucky lady was thrilled with her errand after leaving her local shop £200,000 richer after doing the alcohol run for her husband.
Isabel Sandoval, 35, decided to gamble while browsing her local store in Baltimore, Maryland.
The mother-of-five assessed her chances of winning three scratch cards, aptly named Lady Luck, while picking up beers for her husband after his long day at work.
She explained that she used to play lottery games regularly but quit after never winning any money.
But it seems the Greek goddess her scratch cards are named after decided to reward Isabel for being kind to her spouse.
The warehouse worker ended up bagging a lot more than she bargained for by smacking £200,000 on the lottery ticket.
She returned home from the store and discovered that her impulse purchase had earned her the grand prize.
An overjoyed Isabel said of her win: “I actually stopped playing it for a while because I didn’t win much.
“I said to my friend, ‘This is not for me. I knew right away it was a winner because I scraped the horseshoe.
“But I couldn’t believe the price I saw.”
Her change of heart led to her winning the life-changing windfall — and the mom knows exactly what she’s going to do with it.
She wants to give the money to her mother, who lives in Mexico.
Isabel wisely saves the rest of her profits as a nest egg for her five children and one grandchild.
The 35-year-old picked up her prize at the lottery headquarters in Baltimore this week.
Lottery officials stated that the store where she bought the tickets “is also a winner.”
They stated, “The Baltimore City company, located at 6400 Eastern Avenue in Baltimore, will receive a $1,000 bonus from the lottery for the sale of a highest-prize lottery ticket.”
