The search is on for a new millionaire who purchased their winning lotto ticket from a small town in rural Victoria.
The mystery player, who was one of five players to split the division one prize, is now $1,303,213.75 richer – but there’s a good chance they’re unaware of their life changing win.
The TattsLotto ticket for draw 4193 was purchased in Kyneton, which has a population of just under 9500.
The winner bought the ticket from Collins Authorised News & Lotto on Mollison Street, and the ticket was unregistered, meaning officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner to inform them of their incredible windfall.
The winning numbers in Saturday’s draw were 33, 29, 36, 40, 6 and 28, while the supplementary numbers were 43 and 26.
Newsagent owner Kevin Chen said he was “thrilled” for the winner.
“It’s a big moment for us as it’s our first division one win since I took ownership of the store four years ago,” Mr Chen told The Lott.
“We’ve been decorating the store and spreading this good news. It’s so exciting!
“Hopefully the winner comes forward as soon as possible, as this is big news – they’re now a millionaire.”
Players urged to check their tickets
Anyone who purchased a ticket from Collins Authorised News & Lotto is being urged to check their tickets as soon as possible.
“It’s likely this winner has been going about their day as normal with no idea they won $1 million over the weekend!” The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said.
“Make sure you check your ticket, which could be in your wallet, handbag, on the fridge door or in your car glovebox, because the winner could be you.
“If you discover you are holding the winning ticket, contact The Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”
The mystery winner is one of five who won division one on Saturday. Another winner was also from Victoria, while NSW, South Australia and Queensland had one winner each.
