After nine days of eagerly waiting, we were today able to confirm the life-changing win with Hobart’s mystery winner as they finally came forward to claim their $23.3 million prize. 

The mystery winner held one of the three division one winning entries nationally in Oz Lotto draw 1310, drawn Tuesday 26 March 2019 and takes home a division one prize of $23,333,333.34. 

The winning ticket was unregistered, which means we had no way of contacting the winner to break the life-changing news and had to wait for them to come forward to claim their prize. 

However, how the winner plans to enjoy their multi-million dollar windfall, and why it took them nine days to come forward, will forever be a mystery as they have chosen to remain completely anonymous and celebrate the massive win in private. 

Other Oz Lotto winners tell us that their multi-million dollar prizes give them financial freedom for life. Many share the windfall with their family and loved ones, others use it to travel our sunburnt country and some tell us it helps them achieve the great Australian dream of owning their own home.

The winning ticket was purchased at Hobart City Lotto, Shop 2, Wellington Centre, 40-44 Argyle Street, Hobart. 

Hobart City Lotto owner David Mills said he was thrilled to hear the winner had come forward to claim their prize. 

“Very good!” he exclaimed. 

“It has been busy in store over the last few days and everyone has been interested to see if they have come forward yet. 

“Now we’ll be able to tell them they have and I’m sure most people will be pleased to know the winner has come forward. 

“We wish them all the best with their prize!’
