Mystery Sydney resident wins $2.5 million Lotto draw on Saturday

A mystery Sydneysider who won $2.5million in Saturday night's Lotto draw has yet to come forward and claim their prize.  

The New South Wales player held one of the four division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Lotto draw 4155. 

The ticket is unregistered so officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner to break the news. Instead, they must wait for the ticketholder to come forward and claim their prize.

The winning numbers in draw 4155 were 19, 16, 5, 41, 15 and 20, while the supplementary numbers were 4 and 21. 

The life changing entry was purchased at Broadarrow Newsagency and Tobacconist in Narwee, in Sydney's south.

Broadarrow Newsagency and Tobacconist owner Mandy Tiaw explained she was in celebration mode.

'I was so shocked when I heard the news that we'd sold another division one winning entry,' she said.

'I just can't believe it. We've put up posters and we've got balloons everywhere. We've also been sharing the news with our customers and we are hoping our unregistered winner checks their ticket soon.

'Our customers are so happy for us and excited to know they could potentially hold the winning ticket.

'We last sold a $50 million Powerball division one winning entry in 2018. So, in three years, we have sold two division one winning entries.' 

The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said she was eager to unite the region's newest multi-millionaire with their prize.

'It's likely this winner has been going about their day as normal with no idea they've just won $2.5 million!' she said.
