Almost a month after a $10 million Lotto draw, a Perth grandma discovered she had the winning ticket all along stashed away amongst old receipts.
You know how your grandma (or your friend who denies being a hoarder) just keeps all their old receipts, birthday cards and notes in various envelopes and biscuit tins around the house.
Well imagine if that stash was hiding a 10 MILLION DOLLAR LOTTO TICKET!
That very scenario became a reality for a Perth granny who was this week notified of her winnings via her Lotterywest membership.
“I buy a few Lotto tickets every week and somehow I had mixed this particular one up with some receipts and stashed them in an old envelope,” she told 9News.
“I couldn’t believe it… never it a million years did I expect it was worth $10 million!
“I couldn’t stop crying – dreams do come true.”
As for what she’s doing with her newfound fortune, the unnamed grandmother says she’s going to take care of her grandkids, and “then maybe a few home renovations” as well “enjoying time in my garden".
“I really haven’t had a chance for the news to sink in but my family are number one.”
The rich nana bought her OZ Lotto jackpot ticket from newsXpress Centrepoint Midland.
