A Runaway Bay retiree was a millionaire for almost two weeks without knowing it.

The woman in her 80s got the shock of her life when she checked her lotto ticket on Thursday morning, 12 days after winning last month's Saturday Gold Lotto Superdraw.

She's taken home $1.4 million and told Golden Casket officials she would need to sit down and have a cup of tea before mulling over what to do with the cash.

She said she would definitely be sharing it with her family though.

It is the tenth division one win on the Gold Coast so far this year.
