Grandmother, claimed lottery winnings just in time

Julie Cervera, grandmother from Victorville won $23 million on California SuperLotto Plus last May.

She bought the winning ticket with her last $1. She forgot her ticket for 5 months in her car until one of her daughters texted her to let her confirm the woman her daughter saw in the news. She claimed her money days before its expiry on November 25.

Cervera opted for a lump-sum of $17.8 million and plans on paying off her sister's home, helping her children and grandchildren and her two adopted sons.

"This means I will be able to help have my kids and grandkids taken care of," Cervera said.
