The deadline to claim prizes for the game was March 30.

She said: “I don't normally keep up with the news so I had no idea that such an important prize in the region went unclaimed.

'Bone from nowhere'

“It came as a bolt from the blue when I saw the article.

“I suddenly remembered that I had bought a ticket for the draw, but I never thought it would be the winning ticket.

“When I scanned the ticket on my phone and saw the message confirming my win, I was in disbelief.

“Out of sheer shock, I put the card and phone aside, but after a few hours I was finally able to compose myself to double-check that I wasn't dreaming.”

Old handbag

The winning ticket was purchased from the Friars Road Post Office in Turners Cross.

The winner had left the panties in an old handbag after receiving a new bag as a Christmas present.

She continued: “And to think what could have cost me £100,000 was receiving a nice new handbag for Christmas!”

Elsewhere, Lotto bosses have revealed where two winning tickets were sold last weekend – with players urged to check their slips.
