Unaware Bloke Realises He Has $1 Million Lottery Ticket Four Months After The Draw STOCK

An oblivious US bloke has only just realised he is the holder of a million dollar winning lottery ticket, more than four months after the draw. 

And he almost threw the ticket away. 

The lucky man, Charles Dudley, told his incredible story to the Connecticut Lottery officials.

"I had stopped for ice cream at the Shell station that day," Dudley said.

"While I was there, I got a Powerball Quick Pick, put it in my wallet, and then forgot about it."

It wasn't until he was cleaning out his wallet when he found the ticket, which incredibly the winnings were close to expiring. 

"I checked the winning numbers on the lottery's website and couldn't believe it," he added. 

"I checked it over and over. The numbers were a match."

"It didn't feel real, though, until I checked the location of where the ticket was sold. It was where I bought my ticket." 

Public Service Announcement for everyone to check your wallets because there's a possibility you could be sitting on a winning ticket.
