Search for mystery $2.5m Lotto winner who has 'no idea'

Someone who lives in or recently visited a suburb in Sydney's south is walking around not knowing they are $2.5 million richer.

Four players in Saturday Lotto draw 4155 had division one entries and one of them was purchased in Narwee, Sydney, at the Broadarrow Newsagency and Tobacconist.

Each division one entry has won a prize of $2.5 million.

However, the mystery winner did not register their ticket, so lottery officials have no way of contacting them to confirm the good news.

So now, The Lott is waiting for the winner to come forward and claim their prize.

“It’s likely this winner has been going about their day as normal with no idea they’ve just won $2.5 million!” The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said.

Broadarrow Newsagency and Tobacconist is quite excited about the win and is hoping the mystery winner will be identified soon.

Draw 4155 was announced on Saturday May 15 — the winning numbers were 19, 16, 5, 41, 15 and 20, and the supplementary numbers were 4 and 21.
