The store where a lucky lottery player bought their $30million dollar ticket has been named – but the search for the winner continues.
NSW Lotteries officials confirmed the division one winning entry was sold at Maroubra’s Pacific Square News, in Sydney’s south.
Oz Lotto drew just one winning entry on Tuesday night which will claim the entire life-changing $30million.

Due to the entry not being registered to a player’s card, the identity of the $30million ticket holder remains a mystery
Due to the entry not being registered to a player’s card, the identity of the ticket holder remains a mystery.
David Zou, the owner of Pacific Square News, was thrilled to learn his store sold the winning ticket.
‘I don’t know who will be more excited – me or my customers,’ he said.
‘They are always asking me when I sold my last winning entry, and I tell them it was a few years ago when we sold a $3.5 million Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot winning entry.’
The eastern suburbs has had no shortage of winners in the past.
This year alone, Bondi has produced two division one winners, with one of them winning twice in one week.
One unidentified caretaker took home $100,000 in the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw and just around the corner, Carlo Massetti, also 59, won a whopping $2.5million in five days after purchasing two winning tickets from a Bronte newsagency.
NSW Lotteries are urging all Sydney residents who purchased a ticket for Tuesday night’s draw to check their numbers and to contact them to claim their prize.
In a statement released by Oz Lotto, NSW Lotteries spokesperson Bronnie Spencer said: ‘We can’t wait to confirm the out-of-this-world prize with our mystery winner. Just imagine how $30 million might change your life and the lives of your nearest and dearest,’ she said.
The winning numbers in Oz Lotto’s $40million draw 1282 on Tuesday were 6, 4, 36, 23, 2, 30 and 32. The supplementary numbers were 11 and 27.
