Hello, new Newcastle winner? Would you like to take a $10 million call?

NSW Lotteries officials are enthusiastically trying to contact the only division one winner of last night’s Oz Lotto jackpot draw to break the news that they’re now $10 million richer!

So far this morning, repeated attempts to phone the registered winner using their provided Players Club card membership details have been unsuccessful.

The registered ticket was purchased from Georgetown Newsagency, 12 Moate Street, Georgetown. It was the only division one winning entry in Australia from Oz Lotto draw 1202 on Tuesday 28 February 2017, delivering a prize of $10 million!

The new win from a Newcastle ticket comes just two days after a Newcastle grandfather found a division one winning Saturday Lotto ticket, one year after the draw, while cleaning his car.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Matt Hart said they would keep ringing the winner’s phone number in the hope that they eventually answered.

“We don’t know if this winner knows about their huge $10 million windfall yet, but we’d love to get them on the phone to confirm the news to them. I suspect it’s really going to turn their week around!” he said.

“If you bought a ticket at Georgetown Newsagency in last night’s Oz Lotto draw and your phone is ringing, please pick up! You’ll really want to take our call!

“Anyone who notices some missed calls should check their Oz Lotto ticket and if they think they’re holding the ticket worth $10 million, phone NSW Lotteries as soon as possible on 131 868."

Georgetown Newsagency owner Paul Smith said the outlet was celebrating as it was their first division one winner since taking over the store in 2014.

“Congratulations to the winner! I hope they enjoy their $10 million!” he said.

“Since taking over the store three years ago, our biggest prize was $14,000, but now that’s been blown out of the water by this $10 million win!

“Newcastle seems to be a magnet for lots of things lately. We’ve had Newcastle winners in The Block, My Kitchen Rules and now Oz Lotto!”

The winning numbers in Oz Lotto draw 1202 on Tuesday 28 February 2017 were 2, 37, 26, 17, 42, 33 and 27, with the supplementary numbers 4 and 44.

The Lott’s division one winning entry tally has now reached 272 so far this financial year, including 79 won by NSW Lotteries customers.
