The hunt is on for the mystery Powerball player from Sydney who has unknowingly won more than $10 million in Thursday night's draw.

The unknown winner, who likely lives in Sydney's west, held the only division one winning entry in Powerball draw 1365 on Thursday 14 July – taking home $10,467,587.98.

While the prize pool for Thursday's Powerball draw was originally $8 million, it was boosted to a massive $10 million due to the sheer number of entries purchased by keen Aussies.

The multi-million-dollar winning entry was not registered, meaning lottery officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner to share the life-changing news.

Until the winner comes forward to claim their prize, The Lott will be waiting by the phone.

Winning Powerball ticket lands in Sydney's St Clair

Officials are urging any players who purchased an entry in last night's Powerball draw from St Clair Newsagent in St Clair Shopping Centre to check their ticket immediately.

The Lott spokesperson, James Eddy, said the unassuming Powerball winner could be walking around blissfully unaware of his or her newfound fortune.

"We're urging all players who purchased a Powerball entry from St Clair Newsagent to check their tickets as soon as possible," Mr Eddy urged.

'Imagine the things you could do with $10 million!

Mr Eddy explained that previous winners revealed that their winning entries turned up in "weird and wonderful places" – so, check your wallet, fridge, car console and back pockets.

"Imagine the things you could do with $10 million! You could immediately retire, take the trip of a lifetime or help those nearest and dearest to you," he said.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1365 were 35, 1, 17, 33, 20, 6, 26, while the all-important Powerball number was 5.

Division one winning tally reaches 237 so far in 2022

The Lott's division one winning tally has now reached 237 so far this calendar year, including 63 won by NSW Lotteries customers.

In 2021, 14 Powerball division one winners across Australia pocketed more than $550.1 million in prize money.

Of the 14 Powerball division one winning entries in 2021, seven landed in New South Wales, four in Queensland, two in Victoria and one in Western Australia.

There are more chances to become a millionaire with Tuesday's Oz Lotto offering $5 million and $4 million up for grabs in Thursday's Powerball.

Tonight's Set for Life draw offers players the chance to win $20,000 a month for 20 years, while the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1581 and Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10614 are offering players $12.05 million and $18.61 million respectively.
