BERLIN, Germany: A German woman walked around with a winning $39 million lottery ticket in her purse for weeks before checking it.

Lottery officials said that the unidentified woman, age 45, was the sole winner of a draw on June 9, after correctly guessing all seven fields on a German lottery ticket.

"I still get dizzy at the thought that I carelessly carried almost 33 million euros around in my purse for several weeks," the woman said, according to lottery officials.

The winner, a mother of one, had selected random numbers on the $1.50 lottery ticket.

She said she will not be playing lottery again, noting that the win was "more than enough for my husband, my daughter and me."
