One week on: Mystery Eastern Sydney Oz Lotto winner yet to claim $30 million prize
One week on from the $30 million Oz Lotto draw the mystery winner of the entire jackpot prize is yet to claim their windfall from NSW Lotteries, demanding the question – where are they?
The winning entry, purchased from Pacific Square News in the eastern Sydney suburb of Maroubra, was unregistered so the identity of Australia’s newest multi-millionaire remains a mystery.
The mystery winner holds the only division one winning entry in Oz Lotto draw 1282 drawn on Tuesday 11 September 2018 and could be completely unaware they are $30 million richer.
NSW Lotteries is urging anyone who purchased their unregistered Oz Lotto entry from Pacific Square News, Shop 17, Pacific Square Shopping Centre, 707-747 Anzac Parade, Maroubra, to check their ticket as soon as possible.
NSW Lotteries spokesperson Bronnie Spencer urged eastern Sydney’s newest multi-millionaire to check their ticket soon so they could discover the life-changing news.
“We are so curious to know who our mystery winner is and what the delay is in them coming forward to claim their prize,” she shared.
“Winners have told us previously that they find their unclaimed tickets in the most obvious places and just hadn’t thought to check them.
“They could be walking around with the $30 million winning ticket in their back pocket, their handbag or it could be stuck on the fridge right in front of them.
“We are asking everyone to check their tickets and even if they didn’t win, to make sure they remind their friends and family to check theirs too.
“If you discover you’re holding the unregistered $30 million division one Oz Lotto winning entry, hold on tight to that ticket and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so we can start the prize claim process,” Ms Spencer advised.
NSW Lotteries reminds players of the importance of registering their tickets to a Players Club card so all of their prizes are secure and they can be contacted directly with the good news of a big win.
