"We checked it straight after the draw and we couldn't believe it! I remember thinking 'oh yeah, baby!'" the man told officials. "We couldn't stop shaking!"
The ticket was unregistered, so lottery officials had no way to identify the winners until they came forward.
"We've kept it in a safe ever since that day! We planned to just let the news sink in before we claimed the prize," the man said. "For us, it's like a million dollars, so we wanted to be sensible with our prize and make sure we used it wisely."
The couple told officials they spent months making careful plans for their winnings.
"We have a few bills we want to pay first," the woman said. "Then we both want to help our families and there are a few things the kids need. The rest we want to keep in the bank for a rainy day.
"All of our money stress has completely disappeared, which is amazing for us."
