Woman Finds Old Lottery Ticket Worth $10 MillionA university student in Australia was feeling the strain of not having any money for herself or her family. Hoping to ease the strain the student cashed in old lottery tickets she had forgotten about. When she cashed the tickets in she found that she had won $10 million.
The winner had been missing for ten months in Western Australia when the numbers were drawn and found to have a winner. The student did not know she had won but luckily she found the ticket and had it checked.
Jodi Eastman a spokeswoman for Lotterywest of Australia commented: “People had been wondering for months, who is the mystery winner? Do they know about this ticket? We have a twelve month expiry on lottery tickets. And people thought it might end up expiring and go unclaimed.”
The lucky student has asked officials to keep her name anonymous when she found out she had won the large amount. At first when she turned in the tickets she won only $16 but then the clerk checked a ticket which had been given to the woman by her father. It was that ticket that was found to be worth $10 million.
