The Lott searching for mystery winner of $50m jackpot

One person has won the entire $50m Powerball draw on Thursday night, but they just don’t know it yet.

A resident on the NSW Mid Coast is entering the festive season with tens of millions to spend after being the only winner of the life-changing jackpot.

The Lott spokesman Matt Hart said repeated calls to the new multi-millionaire had gone unanswered.

“I was ready to confirm Powerball’s newest division one winner straight after the results of tonight’s draw were known, but sadly whenever I called the number provided, it just rang out,” he said.

“If you see a number of missed calls on your phone, you could be the winner we’re trying to contact.”

The Lott is urging all Powerball players to check their entries as soon as possible.

The oblivious success story is the 19th division one win in 2022, with winners taking home more than $664m.

NSW has been the most fortunate state with 11 winners, while four have hailed from Victoria.

Two winners reside in Western Australia and there was one success story each in South Australia and Queensland in 2022 so far.

The multimillion dollar mystery of the winner comes only a month after a Sydney man neglected to check his ticket on the night of the draw in October.

He had won more than $53.3m in the record-breaking $160m jackpot but wasn’t aware that The Lott had been trying to reach him.

“This means so much to me,” the Penrith dad said at the time.

“I’ll finally be able to buy a home for my family, my kids can have whatever they want for Christmas, and we’re secure and set up for life.”
