But against all odds, no one claimed the jackpot. Australian Lotto lucky winner can call multiple times, calls go unanswered…
Australian operator The Lot decided to use drastic measures to reach the big winner, a woman from the state of Victoria in south-eastern Australia. According to the Capital website, The lot issues a press release and spreads its message on social networks.

“My God, I can quit my job,” rejoiced the great conqueror. “I can spare some time to spend time with my family”; She believed.
