(QCOSTARICA) Imagine the surprise a young woman who thought she had won ¢140 million colones in the National Lottery actually went home with ¢210 million.

The woman, a 29 year-old Nicaragua national and whose identity is being protected, a resident of Puntarenas played the number 2 in series 131 for ¢8.000 colones, according to the Junta de Protección Social (JPS) – the state lottery corporation.

The young woman did not know about the “accumulated” part of the prizes that since August of this year and running until November the JPS is offering in addition to the jackpot.

The “accumulated” for this Sunday’s draw is ¢10 million colones. The accumulated is a separate draw following the draw for the jackpot prize.
