The mystery winner won the jackpot prize of $11,730,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1476.
New South Wales Lotteries spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said it’s possible the winner is still oblivious to their newfound wealth.
‘Make sure you check your wallet, handbag, fridge door and car glovebox,’ she said.
Previous winners have found valuable tickets in all sorts of strange places.’
