A woman from Michigan in the United States has expressed her shock at having scooped $3 000 000 (R46 million) on the lottery, only after finding the notification that she'd won in the junk folder of her email.

Spears told Michigan Lottery Connect, “I saw an ad on Facebook that the Mega Millions jackpot was getting pretty high, so I got on my account and bought a ticket,”

“A few days later, I was looking for a missing email from someone, so I checked the spam folder in my email account."

55-year-old Spears had entered the Mega Millions lottery draw online on New Year's Eve last year.

She won $1 million by matching five winning numbers, which was then tripled to $3 million after she matched the lottery's "multiplier" bonus.

Spears says she plans to retire early thanks to her win.
