One woman discovered that her half-broken lottery ticket that her daughter had planned to throw in the trash was actually a dream jackpot.
The almost-accumulated ticket had the winning numbers from the Lucky Lotteries Super Bowl draw on Friday, August 31, worth $ 100,000.
The local Adelaide had reviewed the ticket last Monday, but assumed that he had made a mistake after scanning the ticket at a news agency and discovered he could not claim the money.
It turns out that the difficulties in claiming the money were due to the fact that the winning ticket was not registered on an Easiplay Club card. Lottery officials SA had not been able to tell Park Holme's wife, Adelaide, that she had won the money.
One woman discovered that her half-broken lottery ticket she had planned to throw in the container was actually the jackpot of her dreams.
The ticket actually had the winning numbers from the Lucky Jackpot Super Jackpot entry on Friday for $ 100,000.
The woman admitted that she almost cried when she later realized that the ticket was the winner.
"I scanned it at the news agency and said that the prize could not be paid." I thought, "Hmm, what's that?" I thought I would not worry and I would leave it.
"My daughter said, 'Oh, they're not winners, I'll knock them down!'
"I said, wait, wait, wait! They could win something, I'll check!
"I almost cried when I checked later and it was a winner because I was a bit torn!"
The local Adelaide said he was "very happy" with the prize money.
She has pledged to put the proceeds for her daughter's college fees and will use the rest to take her family on vacation to Europe.
The winning entry was purchased at store 12, Parkholme Shopping Center, 319 Oaklands Road, Parkholme.
