A mysterious Australian has woken up $ 10 million richer after winning Oz Lotto on Tuesday night – but they may not know it yet.
The winner, from Sydney, had the only division-one winning ticket in Australia, but they were not registered, so Lotto could not contact them.
Officials said the ticket was purchased from the newsXpress newspaper shop in Crows Nest on the north coast of the city.

The winning numbers were 24, 4, 36, 23, 42, 8 and 30.
Matt Hart spokesperson NSW Lotteries said there was a good chance that the happy Sydneysider still had to check his ticket.
& # 39; Chances are that someone went to work this morning or started his day shopping, completely unaware that they have become $ 10 million richer, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I can't wait to hear the shouts of joy or bewildered silence when this player contacts us to confirm the life-changing news. & # 39;
The owner Louise Geng said that the sale of the winning ticket was a first for her company.
"We have had an outlet for just over two years and this is the first division we have sold," she said.
& # 39; It's just fantastic news. How exciting! Ten million dollars! & # 39;

& # 39; I hope our winner will come in soon to view their ticket so that they can find out that they are now a multi-millionaire. & # 39;
It comes after an office worker from Chatswood on the north coast of Sydney won $ 96 million in August, making him one of the richest direct multi-millionaires ever in Australia.
It was the second largest prize ever in Australia, won by a single person, after a Sydney woman won $ 107 million with Powerball in January.
