May 2 (UPI) -- An unidentified woman from Carrum Downs, Australia has won $100,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket she originally threw away.

The woman had purchased a $5 Golden Edition ticket that she put into the garbage after thinking that she had lost.

"When I first scratched the ticket, I thought it was no good and I was going to put it into the bin. My husband said to me, 'Let's have a look again.' He did have a look and he said to me, 'You've won!" the woman told lottery officials at The Lott.

"I'm glad I didn't throw away this ticket. I guess I'll have to share this prize with my husband now," she continued.

The woman said she plays $5 scratch-off tickets every week but has never won anything like this.

The woman noted that the winnings will help out their children and that she might get a better car.

Recently, an unidentified Australian couple accidentally thought their $1.79 million lottery win was worth $179,000.
