A couple in Australia nearly threw out a $700,000 winning lottery ticket after they checked the winning numbers against the wrong week's results. The West Australian reports that the unnamed Albany couple decided to double check the numbers and discovered they had actually won the Division One prize. "I was ready to throw the ticket out but thankfully my wife decided to recheck it," the husband said. "Let me tell you--once we realized we'd won it was a bloody long drive from Albany." Now that they've claimed their prize, he says the couple plans on buying a new home and taking a vacation. "We might also take a holiday because, let's face it, we're not getting any younger," he quipped.
