Canberrans, check your lottery tickets! The search is on for the mystery winner from the ACT who holds the only division one winning entry from last night’s Set for Life lottery draw 2072.
The winning ticket is worth $4.8 million and was purchased at the Thistle Kiosk at Westfield Woden. The $4.8 million will be paid in instalments of $20,000 a month for 20 years.
The winner is an unregistered player, meaning officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner. Officials are waiting for the ticketholder to come forward to claim their prize.
Thistle Kiosk owner Tania Dezman said she was thrilled one of her customers had won.
“It’s fantastic news. We hope it makes a great change to the winner’s life,” Ms Dezman said.
“We can’t wait to enjoy this excitement with our staff and customers.
“This outlet has had many division one winning entries over its time. The last one was an Oz Lotto division one prize in 2017, so we have been waiting to sell another.”
The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said she couldn’t wait to unite the ACT’s latest division one winner with their prize.
“We’re urging all players who purchased a Set for Life ticket from Thistle Kiosk to check their tickets today,” she said.
“Make sure you check your ticket, which could be in your wallet, handbag, fridge door or car glovebox because the winner could be you and you could be planning what to do with your prize!”
The winning numbers in the draw were 1, 17, 4, 25, 33, 34 and 36, while the supplementary numbers were 39 and 18.
