There were six division one winners of Saturday’s lottery draw across the country, but not all of them know they are more than $670,000 richer.
Two lucky entries were bought in Melbourne, two in Western Australia, one in the Northern Territory and another in Queensland.
But only two of the six winners have come forward to claim their prize.
The Northern Territory entry was registered but officials have not been able to contact the shopper as their contact details seem to be out of date.
That winning entry was purchased at newsXpress Coolalinga at the Coolalinga Shopping Centre and people who bought tickets at that store are being urged to check them.
“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the division one winner we’re searching for, but if you purchased a registered entry in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw that you haven’t checked yet, you’re in with a chance!” Tatts spokesperson Matt Hart said.
One winner from Melbourne is not registered so officials also have not been able to get in touch to tell them about their prize of $672,883.61.
Their ticket was bought at Hudson’s TattsLotto & Dry Cleaning in Werribee.
The two West Australian punters bought their tickets at Market City Lotteries & News in Canning Vale and Media Lottery Centre & News in Cannington, WA Today reports. Neither of them have come forward.
Of the two winners who do know about their windfall, one is a mum from South Melbourne and has been celebrating with her family.
“It will fast-track our retirement plans, but it’s not just for me but the kids too,” the woman who wishes to remain anonymous said.
“It’s not going to be wasted, we’re going to use it wisely and set ourselves up for the future.”
The other winner who knows about their unexpected riches is in her 50s and from the Gold Coast.
“I found out yesterday morning! I went to the computer and typed in the numbers – I couldn’t believe what I was looking at,” she said in a statement.
“I was thinking ‘I hope I won $20, that would be great’. So it was very surprising!”
She plans to pay off her mortgage and treat the family to a holiday.
The winning numbers for Saturday’s draw were 45, 40, 6, 32, 12 and 11, and the supplementary numbers were 10 and 20.
