This means officials from The Lott have no way of contacting the winner and have to wait for them to check their ticket.
Rosebery North Newsagency manager Min Chai said he couldn't wait to break the news to the division one winner.
"It's been a little while since we last sold a division one winning entry, so we couldn't be happier," he said.

The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said the mystery Oz Lotto winner added to the list of unclaimed division one prizes in Sydney.
"Currently in Sydney, there are now five unclaimed division one prizes that have been won during the past five weeks," Ms Cooney said.
"They are all unregistered entries, which means the ticket wasn't registered to a player card, so we have no way of contacting the winning ticketholder".
