Sydney, May 4 (ANI): A Brisbane couple is said to have joked about winning an unclaimed lotto, only to find out that it was their ticket that had won the 15 million dollars Powerball prize in the first place.

The two had not bothered to check their numbers after someone mistakenly told them the mystery winner, who bought the ticket in Toombul, had been found, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The couple, aged in their 30s, who want to remain anonymous, say the reality of their enormous win is still sinking in.

They plan to give some of their winnings to their parents.

They had bought the same type of ticket as the other 15 million dollar winner in the draw - a 12 game Quick Pick worth 8.35 dollar. (ANI)
