With family coming to stay, Tina and Harold Ehrenberg were busy tidying up their home.
While sorting through some papers Tina came across some unchecked lottery tickets.
She jumped online to look up the winning numbers for the draw and was shocked to discover they had the winning ticket.
‘We kept checking the numbers again and again,’ Harold told Louisiana Lottery.
Tina then called the winning numbers hotline to be certain there hadn’t been a mistake.
There hadn’t – Tina and Harold were the winners of $US1.8 million ($2.6 million)!
