Germany: Woman unaware for weeks she had winning lottery ticket worth nearly €33m in her purse

A woman who carried a winning lottery ticket worth almost €33m (£28m) in her purse for weeks without realising says she still becomes “dizzy” at the thought of what she did.

The 45-year-old, who has not been named, was the sole winner of the draw in Germany on 9 June, Lotto Bayern said.

She had continued to “carelessly” carry her good fortune around despite correctly guessing the seven fields on the lottery ticket.

She has now vowed to never play the lottery again and intends to use her lucky windfall to live a healthy life and do more for the environment.

Lotto Bayern quoted the woman as saying: “I still get dizzy at the thought that I carelessly carried almost 33 million euros around in my purse for several weeks.”

The mother-of-one had picked random numbers on the €1.20 (£1) lottery ticket.

She added the win was “more than enough for my husband, my daughter and me” so that she would not need to play again in the future.
