Sydney, Feb 16 (ANI): An Australian woman, who was doing some spring cleaning, ended up winning 2.5 million dollars when she found a five-month-old Tattslotto ticket on her desk.
The woman, from Doncaster in Melbourne, bought the ticket for the Superdraw on September 12 last year but thought she had lost it.
"I was just doing some spring cleaning and came across a ticket clipped to some other paperwork by a bulldog clip," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.
"I knew West Doncaster News and Lotto had sold a division one winner but I thought I had lost my ticket.
"Then I found it filed away yesterday and thought I'd call Tatts to see if I'd won anything. I really had no idea that it was the actual winning ticket," she said.
She is one of two division one winners from that draw.
The woman plans to share some of her win with her family and put the rest in a term deposit to give herself time to think about what to do with her unexpected windfall.
"I lead a simple life and I intend to keep it that way," she added. (ANI)
