CHECK your tickets, Bathurst - someone here is $200,000 richer this afternoon and doesn't even know it yet.
The unsuspecting winner has taken out first prize in this morning's Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1533 but the entry was unregistered and lotteries officials have not been able to make contact with them.
All Bathurst residents are being urged to check their tickets for their chance of claiming the prize.
The winning entry was purchased at Kelso Newsagency in the Centrepoint Shopping Plaza on Boyd Street and team member Sally Curry said she hoped the winner discovered their life-changing news soon.
