The lucky player who bought the winning ticket for the $50 million lottery has no idea that they have won the top prize.
Lott officials have been trying to get in touch with the mystery contestant after they became the only Division One Powerball winner on Thursday.
Spokesman Matt Hart said he has made several calls and left voicemails but received no response.

“I was ready to confirm Powerball’s newest Division 1 winner right after the result of tonight’s draw was known, but unfortunately when I called the number provided, it just rang,” he said.
‘If you see a number of missed calls on your phone, you may be the winner we are trying to contact.’
Few details are known about the mystery winner, other than they live on the NSW North Coast and they registered their ticket on their player card.
“You might not think it’s possible you’re the first division winner we’re looking for, but if you have an entry from a NSW Lotteries store on the Mid North Coast for this week’s Powerball draw that you haven’t checked yet , ‘have a chance!’ said Mr. Hart.
‘We encourage all Powerball players to check their entries as soon as possible.
‘If you discover that you are in possession of the Division 1 winning voucher, please contact Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.’
The winning numbers for Thursday night’s drawing 1384 were 6, 9, 14, 25, 27, 31, 33 and the Powerball was 15 (stock image)
The winning numbers for Thursday night’s drawing 1384 were 6, 9, 14, 25, 27, 31, 33 and the Powerball was 15.
In Division Two, 26 lucky winners will split more than $811,000 between them, each taking home $31,222.55.
The draw comes just weeks after a group of 20 fellow miners took home $53.3 million in the nation’s largest Powerball jackpot to date.
October’s mega $160million Powerball was won by just three lucky winners, each of whom became about $53million richer.
