Imagine the moment you know you walked around with almost $ 40 million in your purse for weeks without even realizing it.
An anonymous German woman did not even know that she had hit the German lottery lottery 6aus49 € 32 million (US $ 38.98 million) pot from Wednesday, June 9, 2021 drawing until several weeks later.
It’s good that tickets stayed in her purse – if she moved, she would have been heartbreaking for the € 32 million pot to go unclaimed.
“I always get dizzy at the thought that I carelessly carry almost 33 million euros around in my purse for several weeks,” the 45-year-old player told Bayern Lotto.
According to the lottery, the name woman chose random numbers on the 6aus49 Lotto ticket she bought for € 1, or US $ 1.20.
The chances of matching all six numbers plus the Superzahl to win the pot are about 1 in 139.84 million. The winning numbers for the drawing on June 9 were 1, 7, 17, 22, 41, and 49 and Superzahl 3.
With the money safely claimed, the woman said she doesn’t plan on playing lottery anymore and noted that the win was “more than enough for my husband, my daughter, and me.”
He also said that winning will be put to good use in helping him live a healthy lifestyle and do more for the environment.
