23m prize just before it expired
A 69yearold grandmother from California has come forward to claim a $23m lottery jackpot after the winning ticket languished in her car glove compartment for months and almost expired.
Julie Cervera of Victorville received her winnings yesterday after lottery officials did a media blitz in hopes of identifying her.
Grainy surveillance video from the liquor store where the ticket was purchased in May showed a darkhaired woman who turned out to be Ms Cervera daughter.
"I put my 99cent glasses on, and I had to put two pairs on to see it," said Ms Cervera.
She recognised her daughter in the grainy photo, but she still couldn read the caption.
"And I thought she robbed a bank," Ms Cervera joked.
However then she realised what it meant and was overjoyed to learn that she had won the prize money.
Ms Cervera had been driving home when her daughter got car sick and wanted to stop to buy a bottle of water.
Ms Cervera gave her one dollar to buy a lottery ticket, which was left in the car.
"She like me a lottery ticket! and I was like no, no, no,[url=http://www.onitsukatiger.com.sg]onitsuka tiger[/url], no, I just getting water. And then she digging in her purse for a dollar. And I like OK, I just getting you a lottery ticket. So I went, grabbed water and grabbed her a ticket, explained Charliena Marquez, Cervera daughter who bought the winning ticket.
