Spring Clean Surprise for Australian Lottery Winner

An Australian Lottery winner who won a share of a $30 million prize last month failed to realize she was a winner until a few days ago when a spot of spring-cleaning unearthed her winning ticket.

The winner wishes to remain anonymous, but told lottery officials that although she had was aware a $1.4 million prize remained unclaimed she had no idea she's picked the winning numbers until she began rifling through some old papers. "I was cleaning out my room and found the ticket just now," she said.

She now plans to pay off her mortgage and send her parents on a "well-deserved holiday".
