A Queensland woman has claimed she is owed $2million after winning a lottery draw seven years ago - despite the fact she's lost her ticket.

Kathy Jasmine Rado, 59, from Cairns, is now suing The Lott in a desperate attempt to get them to hand over the money and reveal the details of the winning docket.

Ms Rado claims she chose seven numbers and paid with cash to purchase the ticket on January 22, 2014 at a newsagent in her suburb.

The mother has gone to great lengths to prove she's the winner, including hiring a psychic to help her find the ticket, and leaving leaflets on every car in the parking lot asking for other shoppers to confirm they saw her buy the ticket.

In an affidavit submitted to the Supreme Court, Ms Rado said she's been trawling through her house using a special light to make out the numbers on old lottery tickets.

Tabcorp, which owns The Lott, revealed the prize had been won at a Cairns DFO NewsExtra store with the winning numbers 44, 3, 11, 42, 22, 26.

Ms Rado claims she chose these numbers because they were the birthdays of relatives and her parents' wedding anniversary.

'I am not a lunatic, I'm fighting to be listened to,' she told The Courier-Mail.

She admitted to being a 'hoarder' which may be a reason she's lost the ticket, and said she didn't buy a players card because she was fearful of giving away too much of her personal information online.

Mega Millions Drawing For 01/01/21, Friday Jackpot is $401 Million

  Mega Millions Drawing For 01/01/21, Friday Jackpot is $401 Million Feeling lucky in the new year? Friday night's 01/01/21 jackpot is worth $401 million, with a cash-value option of $305.4 million. The total jackpot could increase depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing. The winning numbers on Tuesday (12/29/20) for the $376 million jackpot were: 01-31-35-48-62 with a Mega Ball of 19. The Megaplier was 3x. There was no grand prize winner from Tuesday's drawing, nor were there any tickets sold that matched the first five white balls, and minus the gold Mega Ball, for the game's second prize of $1 million.

She claims she didn't realise until a week later she had won and when she contacted The Lott to inform them, she was rejected.

Ms Rado said she couldn't remember the time she paid for it or kind of ticket she'd bought.

'This company (The Lott) have gone out of their way to give me a hard time,' she said in her affidavit.

The gambling company gave her and her two sons three turns each to guess the time, date and type of ticket - all were unsuccessful.

The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation also looked into her claims but were unable to declare her the winner.

She's hoping the court case will force The Lott to reveal the details of the ticket so she can then 'match this' to her memory of her own purchase.

Ms Rado obtained a statement from Australia Post confirming she had visited their store at the shopping centre that day but there was no CCTV from the centre management available.

The mother said that she has ten years to reclaim her prize from the purchase date as long as she can locate the missing ticket.

She plans to use the money to help friends and family, as well as giving it to charity.

Her court case will be heard again on February 3.

Ms Rado still buys lottery tickets using the same numbers.
