ONE lucky New South Wales resident is a whopping $50 million richer after taking out the entire Oz Lotto jackpot all to themselves, but they may not even know it!
Lotto officials confirmed Tuesday night’s winning entry was not registered to a player card, so they have no way of contacting the winner to share the life-changing news.
Oz Lotto spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said she was eagerly waiting for Australia’s newest multi-millionaire to make contact and start the prize claim process.

“Someone has become an overnight mid-week multi-millionaire but possibly doesn’t know it yet. We can’t wait for them to discover this winning news! Just imagine how $50 million might change your life and the lives of your nearest and dearest,” she said.
“There are 50 million reasons why all New South Wales players who had an entry in last night’s draw should check their ticket this morning.
“If you discover you’re holding the division one winning entry, hold on tight to that ticket and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so that we can start the prize claim process!”
The Lott won’t reveal the exact location the ticket was purchased until 11.00am AEDT to try and protect the winner’s anonymity.
