UPDATE: A Newcastle couple has come forward to claim their $1 million win in last night's Lotto draw.
“This couldn’t have happened in a better month. It’s our 50th wedding anniversary,” the husband told Lotteries officials.
“We’ve worked for every penny we’ve earned. With this win, we can now retire," he said.
“I can’t believe it. I’ll have to pinch myself!”
The winning ticket was bought from newsXpress at Stockland Wallsend Shopping Centre.

A ticket bought from newsXpress at Wallsend took out the division one prize in Wednesday's Lotto draw, however there's no sign of the winner.
"It is a registered ticket, but the winner hasn't claimed it as yet," said Camden who works at the newsagency.
The newsagency has been decorated with balloons and streamers as staff wait for the lucky winner to claim their prize.
The winning numbers from draw 3771 are 35, 21, 19, 8, 36 and 37. The supps are 2 and 15.
