Spain lotto winner nearly loses millions by tossing tickets: "Spanish lottery player nearly lost nine million euros (12 million dollars) in winnings after tossing tickets in the rubbish only to later discover they were winners, Spanish media said Sunday.
Ignacio Gonzalez, a lottery ticket vendor in the country's northern Basque Country, was stunned to discover Friday that the number he had played along with 14 friends -- 48104 -- had come up in a charity draw run by a Spanish organisation for the blind, ONCE.
Gonzalez's euphoria quickly turned to despair, however, when he could not find the winning tickets.
'The New Year was off to a very good start, with a shower of millions, but on the other hand I couldn't find the tickets,' Gonzalez told Basque radio station Radio Euskadi.
After a desperate search of his home and with hope running out, Gonzalez ran out to his neighbourhood rubbish bin."
