Lotto Winner's Mum Trashed her Ticket

A young woman from Western Australia who won AUD$ 1 million in Wednesday's Australia Lotto drawing has claimed her prize, but told lottery staff she'd had to search through the trash to locate her winning ticket.

The search for the ticket began when the woman wanted to check her numbers. She and her mother searched the house without luck. They finally found the ticket in the trash and the woman's mother realized she must have thrown it away by mistake.

"After we double-checked the numbers we just started screaming and then there were lots of tears," the woman said.  "The Lotto Gods must have heard me."
