$100,000 at the lower part of a handbag: Alberta lady overlooked winning Lotto Max ticket for a really long time

There may be something to the manner of expression "set and neglect".

The champ of a $100,000 lotto prize says she completely failed to remember she had gotten the ticket,

in the wake of hauling it around in the profundities of her satchel for quite a long time after the success.

Annie Austan, of Stronghold MacLeod, Alberta, says on a midday in late July, she was recovering something from her sack when

 she found the Lotto Max ticket from the June 28th draw. Preceding that, she had completely disregarded it.

Austan presently can't seem to conclude how precisely she'll manage the rewards.

She initially purchased the ticket from a pharmacy in Post MacLeod on June 25.

A comparative occurrence happened to an Ontario man last month, who found a triumphant lotto ticket in the cupholder of his vehicle.
