One person won the entire $50 million Powerball drawing Thursday night, but they just don’t know yet.
A NSW Mid Coast resident heads into the festive season with tens of millions to spend after being the sole winner of the life-changing jackpot.
Lott spokesman Matt Hart said repeated calls to the new multimillionaire went unanswered.
“I was ready to confirm Powerball’s latest Division 1 winner right after the results of today’s draw were announced, but unfortunately it rang whenever I called the number provided,” he said.
“If you see a bunch of missed calls on your phone, you could be the winner we want to contact.”
The Lott encourages all Powerball players to verify their entries as soon as possible.
The forgotten success story is winning League 19 in 2022, with winners taking home more than $664 million.
NSW was the luckiest state with 11 winners, while four were from Victoria.
Two winners live in Western Australia and so far in 2022 there has been one success story each in South Australia and Queensland.
The winner’s multimillion-dollar secret comes just a month after a Sydney man failed to check his ticket on the night of the October drawing.
He had won more than $53.3 million in the record-breaking $160 million jackpot, but was unaware that The Lott was trying to reach him.
“It means so much to me,” said the Penrith father 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 safe and ready for life.”
