The winner of California’s “SuperLotto Plus Jackpot” sat on her ticket for 5 months, not knowing that she won $23 million, reports ABCNews.com.

It was only after her daughter saw her in a snapshot of surveillance video in the newspaper that she made the discovery — 25 days before forfeiting the money to California public schools for failure to claim her prize.

“We had our winner come forward and claim the $23 million prize,” confirmed California Lottery spokesperson Alex Traverso. “She said she just never checked the ticket.”

“When her daughter sent her mother a picture of the newspaper this morning, she just went back out to the car and the ticket was sitting right where she left it. Pretty amazing.”

The winner filed her claim today and, according to officials, should be receiving her check in four to six weeks. However, it’s been a long five months for California Lottery officials who had been searching for the mystery winner,  who purchased the winning ticket at Michael’s Market & Liquor in Palmdale, Calif.

Before the individual came forward, liquor store manager Ben Sadi told ABC News he remembers the day the woman bought the ticket.

“I know what she looked like and I recognize who she is,” said Liquor store manager Ben Sadi.

Sadi’s store opened on May 1, and four weeks later, on May 28, the winning ticket was pulled.

The ticket matched all six numbers – 14, 7, 26, 31, 23 and Mega 5. After the liquor store learned they had sold the winning ticket, they posted signs outside the store along with photos from surveillance of the alleged winner.

The deadline to claim the $23 million was November 26, 2012.

Thank goodness her daughter reads the newspaper! Hopefully, she gets a finder’s fee.
