Lottery officials say a woman in Germany carried a winning ticket in her purse for weeks without realizing it was worth about 33 million euros ($39 million).

樂透官員說,德國一名女子的錢包裡帶著獲獎彩券好幾週,沒意識到它有將近3300萬歐元(3900萬美元)價值。

Lotto Bayern said Wednesday that the 45-year-old woman was the sole winner of a draw on June 9, having correctly guessed seven fields on a German lottery ticket.

「拜仁樂透」週三說,這名45歲的婦女是6月9日開獎的唯一獲獎者,正確猜對德國樂透彩券7個數字。

It quoted the woman, who wasn’t named, saying “I still get dizzy at the thought that I carelessly carried almost 33 million euros around in my purse for several weeks.”

它引用這位未被指出名字的女子說法,「對於我粗心把將近3300萬歐元放在錢包裡到處跑好幾週,我還是一想到就頭暈。」

The mother of one had picked random numbers on the 1.20-euro lottery ticket and doesn’t plan to play again, saying the win was “more than enough for my husband, my daughter and me,” the company quoted her as saying.
