Someone in the Tweed is almost three-quarters of a million dollars richer and they don’t know it yet.
A person who bought a ticket in Saturday’s Lotto draw is among seven people who shared the first division prize.
Each winner pockets a tidy $740,461.20.

The winning ticket was bought at Tweed Mall News but was unregistered so officials from The Lott can’t trace them.
The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer says they hope someone comes forward to claim their winnings soon.
“Make sure you check your wallet, handbag, fridge door, or anywhere else you may have stored your tickets,” Ms Spencer said.
“If you discover you’re holding the winning ticket, hold on tight to it and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so we can start the prize claim process!”
Tweed Mall News owner Graeme Hooley described the news as ‘fantastic.’.
“With everything that is going on in the world, it’s the perfect time for a life-changing windfall,” Mr Hooley said.
“This will be the topic of discussion all week, no doubt! There will be lots of banter going on in the store.”
The winning numbers in Saturday Lotto were 1, 41, 26, 23, 14 and 8 with supplementary numbers of 33 and 12.
