A staggering $50 million could be yours tomorrow as Oz Lotto’s jackpot soars to it’s highest level in 10 years.
But if you miss out on the top prize, there’s also another eye-watering stack of cash on the cards, with Thursday night’s Powerball jackpotting to an incredible $80 million.
It means more than $130 million in total is up for grabs this week alone.
The Oz Lotto prize is the result of five weeks of jackpotting, as no entry has held the seven winning numbers needed to score Oz Lotto’s life-changing division one prize in more than a month.
So far in 2020, there have been nine Oz Lotto division one winning entries across Australia that have taken home a combined $77,143,666 in division one prize money.
Four of these division one prizes have landed in NSW, three have been snagged by Victorians, and one each has gone to players in Queensland and Western Australia.
The Lott spokeswoman Lauren Cooney said only time would tell where the next multimillion-dollar Oz Lotto jackpot will land.
“We’re expecting up to one-in-six Australian adults to have an entry into tomorrow night’s draw as excitement builds for the game’s biggest jackpot of the year,” she said.
“One player could set the record tomorrow night as the biggest Oz Lotto winner of 2020.”
The biggest individual Oz Lotto prize that’s been won so far in 2020 was in May when a Parramatta man pocketed $16,917,396.
“This prize could certainly be superseded in a very big way tomorrow night if one or more players take home division one,” Ms Cooney said.
“You do need an entry to be in with a chance to win, so make sure you have your ticket before the draw closes at 7.30pm AEST on Tuesday night.
“We will be on standby to reach out to any registered division one winners after the draw, but to do that players need to register their entries. We will be ready to potentially break the life-changing news on Tuesday night.”
Tickets can be purchased at any licensed lottery outlet, online from thelott.com or via the Lott mobile app.
Meanwhile, Thursday’s Powerball will have a whopping prize of $80 million after last week’s $50 million jackpot failed to score a lucky winner.
One-in-six Australians were predicted to have gotten their hands on a ticket for the Powerball last time around, and that number could climb even higher this week as excitement builds.
The last Powerball division one winner was crowned in May when a Logan man won $17 million and planned to break the news to his family by pulling into the driveway in a flash new car.
But the biggest winner of this particular game this year was a Port Macquarie man who pocketed a massive $80 million. The first thing this incredibly lucky winner did was buy his own brand new television.
