One lucky Australian is unaware they are almost $6 million richer after winning Tuesday’s Oz Lotto.
A Queensland resident holds one of two winning tickets for the $10 million jackpot and is set to take home $5,865,030.22.
But Oz Lotto has no way of contacting the winner because the ticket wasn’t registered.
The winning ticket was purchased at Premier News & Casket on Merthyr Road in New Farm, Brisbane.

Premier News & Casket owner David Dunley said he and his team were excited to see one of their customer’s score a massive multi-million-dollar win.
‘We’re happy for whoever has won it. I hope they don’t take too long to check their ticket and claim their prize,’ he said.
‘About three months ago we sold a 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot, which was $100,000. This one blows that one out of the water!’
The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said she was eager to confirm the news with the winner and unite them with their prize.
‘Someone in Brisbane could have gone to work this morning with no idea they’ve woken up almost $6 million richer,’ she said.
‘Make sure you check your wallet, handbag, fridge door, or anywhere else you may have stored your tickets.
‘Previous winners have found valuable tickets in all sorts of places.’
The winning numbers in Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw were 10, 27, 26, 18, 23, 32 and 36, while the supplementary numbers were 20 and 5.
The lucky winner is urged to call phone 131 868 to claim their winnings.
