Lottery officials are calling on participants in Tuesday's Oz Lotto draw to check their phones after two winners shared the $50 million jackpot.

While one of the winners, a Queenslander, is registered online, The Lott has yet been able to contact them with their life-changing news.

“I was ready to confirm Oz Lotto’s newest division one winner straight after the results of tonight’s draw were known, but sadly whenever I called the number provided, it just rang out and went straight to message bank,” spokesperson Mat Hart said.

“If you see a number of missed calls on your phone, you could be the winner we’re trying to contact."

And while the other winner of the Division One prize, a Western Australia resident, has yet to be confirmed, The Lott are confident of making contact.

“We’re urging all Oz Lotto players to check their entries as soon as possible," Mr Hart pleaded.

Tuesday's winning numbers were 17, 31, 22, 11, 26, 36 and 4, while the supplementary numbers were 16 and 6.

The top prize had not been scooped since December with Tuesday's Division One offering the highest since June 2019.
