Can you imagine the moment when you realize that you have been walking around the town with $40 million in your purse without even knowing it?
Well, this anonymous German woman did not have the slightest idea that she had hit the Germany Lottery's Lotto 6aus49 €32 million (US$38.98 million) jackpot, on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, until a number of weeks, after she had this exciting realization.
Well, the only thing that was great about this whole situation was that she carried the winning lottery ticket in her purse, and did not misplace it anywhere. Because had it been misplaced, the jackpot would have gone unclaimed, or anyone who would have stolen the lucky ticket would have enjoyed the newfound wealth leaving her devastated.
According to the lucky winner, she still gets giddy at the thought that she was actually carrying almost 33 million euros around in her purse for several weeks.
As per the information stated by the German Lottery, the anonymous lottery winner chose random numbers to mark her Lotto 6aus49 ticket which she purchased €1, or US$1.20.
The winning numbers for Wednesday’s drawing held on June 9, were 1, 7, 17, 22, 41, and 49 with Superzahl 3. The odds of matching all the six numbers plus the Superzahl to win the jackpot are approximately 1 in 139.84 million.
The newfound wealth safely claimed by the lucky winner said that she does not plan on playing the lottery again and suggests that the amount won is more than enough for herself, her husband, and her daughter.
The anonymous winner plans on using the money by putting it to use for living a healthy life and doing something good for the environment.
