“This is a great reminder to all lottery players to register your ticket to an online account or player’s card because if you scored a life-changing prize, we could call immediately after the draw,” she said.
“Imagine going to bed tonight not knowing you’ve just won $30 million in Oz Lotto.
“That’s the reality for one mystery NSW player.
“We’re encouraging everyone to check their entries.”
So far this year, 13 Oz Lotto division one winners have scored more than $233 million in prize money.
