A North Carolina woman won $2 million after buying a lottery ticket for a drawing she was not even trying to enter.

Elizabeth Johnson rushed to get her numbers into a Powerball drawing last week but missed the cutoff by a minute.

However, Johnson's ticket was good for the drawing three days later which earned her the jackpot.

She says she was surprised when she found out she won because she thought she didn't play that particular night.

Johnson plans to buy a house and take her kids to Disneyland.
