An 84-year old woman in Calhoun County was walking around with a a winning lottery ticket and didn't even know it. The reason why she was didn't know it was because it was in her purse and according to it was in her purse for three weeks! The woman, who is remains anonymous, had been walking around with a ticket worth $250,000! And even after she found out it was a winning ticket, she was unaware that it was worth THAT much until she showed up at Michigan Lottery headquarters this week, in downtown Lansing and they told her what it was worth!

So now if you play the lottery make sure to check all of your tickets, especially if they are older cause they can still be winners. Also you still have 1 year from the time you buy the tickets so always check your ticket.
