The mystery winner is yet to come forward and claim their top prize, and may not even know they are now a multimillionaire.

The Lott said the winning entry was not registered to a player card, so the identity of the ticket holder remains a mystery and they are unable to track them down until they come forward.
Spokesperson Matt Hart said he was eagerly waiting for Australia’s newest multi-millionaire to get in touch to pocket their winnings.
“Someone has become a mid-week multi-millionaire but possibly doesn’t know it yet,” he said.
“We can’t wait for them to discover this winning news! Just imagine how $30 million might change your life and the lives of your nearest and dearest.
“There are 30 million reasons why all Tasmanian players who had an entry in last night’s draw should check their ticket this morning.”
Hart’s advice for the division one winner is simple: “hold on tight to that ticket and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so that we can start the prize claim process.”
In addition to the lucky Tasmanian who pocketed the $30 million division one prize, there were also 568,791 wins across divisions two to seven that collectively took home more than $12.6 million.
The winning numbers in Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw 1539 were 23, 6, 27, 41, 8, 24 and 47, while the supplementary numbers were 4, 13 and 28.
