Mystery Oz Lotto winner is a millionaire but has no idea – have you checked your numbers?

A LOTTO winner has become a millionaire but has no idea he has won the jackpot.

The mysterious lucky man is likely still walking the streets of Canberra as the $1 million prize has yet to be claimed since the weekend’s draw.

The winning Division 1 ticket was one of ten lottery tickets drawn in Saturday Lotto draw No. 4397 and was unregistered, meaning Lott officials cannot tell the person that they won the $1 million prize .

The golden ticket was purchased at Penney’s Paper Shop, where its owner James Penney is “eagerly waiting” for the lucky winner to come forward.

“We warmly congratulate our newest Mystery Division 1 winner and hope it is a great success for his family,” he said.

“We hope to share the winning news with you soon!”

According to, the latest draw marks the 14th time the Gungahlin news agency has sold a Division 1 winning entry since it opened.

And it looks like the winner is going about his day as normal, unaware of the life-changing news. So you better check your numbers because it could be your lucky day.

“We urge all players who purchased a Saturday Lotto ticket at Penney’s Paper Shop to check their tickets as soon as possible,” said Anna Hobdell, spokeswoman for The Lott.

“Monday blues would certainly not be an option if the mystery winner checked his ticket today and found out that he was a newly minted millionaire.”

“Be sure to check your ticket, which could be in your wallet, purse, fridge door or the glove compartment of your car, because the winner could be you and you could also be planning what you want to do with your prize!”

The winning numbers for Saturday Lotto draw 4397 on September 9, 2023 were 11, 9, 14, 29, 7 and 15, while the additional numbers were 17 and 23.

Anyone who discovers they are in possession of the winning ticket can contact The Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming their prize.

Earlier this year, a Mom was stunned to find out she had become a multimillionaire after spotting a $2 million lottery ticket stuck to her fridge.

The Sydney woman had the jackpot ticket for weeks since the million-dollar draw on June 24.

After returning the winning ticket, the mother said she was now able to pay off her mortgage and help provide a life for her children.
