ONE lucky south-west resident is unaware they are almost $1 million richer.

Tatts has revealed the owner of a division one ticket purchased from Reinheimers Newsagency & Lotto has not yet been identified.

The ticket was one of four division one entries worth $986,236.30.

Reinheimers staff member Kirsty Cheater said word was spreading that the outlet had sold a division one winning entry.

“We’re hoping the ticketholder checks their entry soon so we can help them celebrate,” she said.

Tatts spokesman Matt Hart said Warrnambool’s mystery winner held one of two division one tickets bought in Victoria.

“Imagine being over $986,000 richer for nearly two weeks and not knowing it? Think of all the plans you could have made knowing you hold the winning ticket,” Mr Hart said.

“You may not think it’s possible that you could be the division one winners we’re searching for, but if you purchased an unregistered entry in TattsLotto draw 3821 that you haven’t checked yet, you’re in with a chance.”
