A California State Lottery ticket worth $202,556 was turned in Tuesday by a Bay Area woman who said she found it while cleaning her house, lottery officials announced.

The ticket, which was purchased in San Francisco at a Chevron gas station at 1501 Van Ness Ave., was cashed in just two days before it expired. Winners have 180 days to claim their prizes.

The woman requested that the California State Lottery not release her name, but told lottery officials her only immediate plan for the money was to put it in the bank.

Future winners are reminded to contact lottery officials as soon possible after the draw.
