Men don’t go anywhere near it, and woman call it beautiful chaos. Once again, we have a EuroMillions lottery player, of the fairer sex, who found a winning lottery ticket amongst her cluttered treasures.
There is something poetic and romantic about a woman who cares enough to carry around her little objects that hold a world of meaning to her, and every now and again we come across another euro lotto players who, finds more than she’s bargained for.
There are two types of woman in the world:
Fancy and Organised
Miss Organised has a perfectly neat, organized purse. Not only these ladies prepared for anything, they love to stay connected at the same time. Their brains are also wired to think of every possible scenario in which things could go wrong – so they have everything from emergency sewing kits to pocket charges safely tucked into designated areas in their leather adorned handbags.
Then you get the ladies who have a ferocious mega hurricane existing within the confines of their handbags. But, in today’s world where everything needs to be done is rush, it’s no wonder that the handbag can get it a little chaotic at times.
Thankfully, for one EuroMillions lottery player, after buying a EuroMillions ticket, she slipped it into her bag, and as the saying goes, “Fortune is sometimes waiting for us in the most unexpected of places.”
This is the case of a woman from Wicklow and that place was her messy handbag.
It was weeks later that she found the winning ticket in her purse and came forward to collect it with her husband.
The prize: €500.000! That’s half a million Euro just lying about in a handbag.

The woman decided to opt to stay anonymous after matching the winning combination on September 20th.
The ticket was purchased at the Kilmacanogue Esso Service Station on the Dublin Road in Kilmacanogue, but it took them some time to check the numbers since the ticket spent a week in wife’s handbag.
“I had them in my handbag for a few weeks. To think, I’d a ticket worth half a million euro in my handbag! I didn’t get around to checking them until yesterday and got a message on the scanner to contact the National Lottery,” said the lucky EurMillions winner, when she collected the prize at the National Lottery offices in Dublin on Friday.
After being presented with the €500.000 cheque, the lucky EuroMillions woman described their victory as ‘amazing.’
“I was very calm when I phoned the National Lottery to confirm. I read out the number on the ticket and was told we’d won half a million. Well, then I lost my calm. I’ve been shaking ever since.”
