Search for four 'missing' Aussie millionaires after major lotto wins

The hunt has been renewed for the country's latest millionaires with a new Lotto winner scooping a major prize.

Another newly minted millionaire is yet to step forward as the hunt continues for Western Australia’s latest Lotto winners.

A ticket bought at Kelmscott Newsagency in Perth matched the numbers drawn in Wednesday Lotto’s $1 million Division One prize, but Lotterywest says no one’s called to claim the prize.

It comes almost a week after a $40 million Powerball was won by one lucky person in Perth, but they haven’t come forward either. Officials say they are also looking for the owners of two tickets from Saturday Lotto’s draw on February 11, worth $1.25 million each. Coincidentally both were purchased at Pharmacy 777 in East Perth.

“Normally, if anyone’s in shock from the win, they want to come in as quickly as possible just so then they have a formal response of saying, 'yes you are a winner, you don't need to second guess yourself anymore',” James Mooney from Lotterywest said.

But he says it’s not uncommon for players to not turn up for two or three weeks.

“Some people take a little bit of time, whether that's from not checking the ticket or just trying to process it as well,” he said.

“There's also a case where people tend to have a routine like maybe every Friday they go and buy a ticket and then check last week's ticket at the same time.”

Unfortunately because the $40 million Powerball winner didn’t register their ticket, Lotterywest has no way of reaching out to them directly.

“We just don't know who they are, if they are aware or not, so we just keep pushing out information,” Mr Mooney explained.

On top of the four millionaires who are yet to pick up their prizes is a fifth missing Division One winner. That Super Saturday 66 ticket was drawn on March 4 and is worth $127,000.

Mr Mooney confirmed that ticket was purchased from Katanning Lottery Centre and is urging all punters over the last month to check their numbers.

“If you have a ticket and you bought it in the metro area in Perth, please check your ticket because we'd love to talk to you,” he said.
