Someone In Newcastle Just Won The Lotto And Doesn't Know It

NSW Lotteries officials are on the lookout for the lucky Newcastle punter who won $716,806 in last Saturday's Lotto draw.

A ticket bought from New Lambton Newsagency was one of only six division one winning entries across Australia.

This is the seventh division one win in Newcastle this year, totaling nearly $30 million.

It's also the first winning division one entry for New Lambton Newsagency owner Debbie Mannix since she took over the store seven years ago.

"It’s unreal and so exciting to have sold a division one winning entry. There’s been a few around the city this year and we kept thinking ‘it’s our turn next, it’s our turn next’,” she said.

As of Tuesday morning the prize still hasn't been claimed.
