Are you Canberra's mystery Lotto winner?

A Canberra Lotto player is more than $580,000 richer, but they may not know it yet.

The mystery punter bought one of seven winning tickets in Saturday's division one Lotto draw and is yet to claim their $580,653.79 prize. The ticket was purchased at Westfield Belconnen's Nextra newsgency.

The ticket is not registered to a Players Club card, so NSW Lotteries officials have no way of contacting the winner.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Matt Hart urged Canberra Lotto players to check their tickets as soon as possible.

“Could you think of a better way to start your working week then discovering you won Saturday Lotto?” he said.

“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the division one winner we’re looking for, but if you purchased an entry in the Saturday Lotto draw that you haven’t checked yet, you’re in with a chance."

The winning ticket is the third major lottery prize won in the ACT so far this year, following February wins by Canberra residents in the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot.

The six winning numbers in Saturday's draw were 38, 17, 7, 18, 9 and 10, while the supplementary numbers were 20 and 35.

If you're the winning ticket holder, contact NSW Lotteries on 131 868 to claim your prize.
