Big Oz Lotto wins
1. 15 million Oz Lotto
A woman from the Sunshine Coast scooped up the whole $15 million on the Oz Lotto in February 2014 with the same set of lucky lottery numbers she had been playing for twelve months solid. Unfortunately she didn’t play the Oz Lotto online, so she had no idea that she had become a multi-millionaire. It was only once she double checked her ticket a while later that she realised she had scooped the big one!
“I’ve always wanted a holiday home and now I can build one,” she said. “I have adult children and they’re now rich as well!”
2. $15 million Oz Lotto
Another lucky Oz Lotto player’s dream came true when he won $15 million. He found out about the life changing lottery win when he double checked his Oz Lotto ticket at this local shop. He couldn’t stick around too long though, as he was on his way to collect his child from school. The shop owner said that the man was “more deserving” of the win than a lot of people, and that he was “a good customer” who played the Oz Lotto regularly.
For those thinking that $15 million’s not but to write home about, think again! The Oz Lotto can get big – really big!
3. $100 million – Oz Lotto
Australia’s biggest lotto jackpot comprised of four winners who shared the $100 million in November 2012. They each won $27 million including prizes in minor divisions.
4. $90 million – Oz Lotto
Two lotto players took home over $50 million each thanks to a second prize tier win.
5. $70 million – Oz Lotto
In December 2013, a lotto player from Queensland broke records by winning the entire prize pool, making it the largest single lotto win in Australian history.
Australians love playing the lotto and with jackpots like these, it’s easy to see why. After all that’s why we play the lottery in first place right? To become instant multi-millionaires!
So while the most searched for keyword worldwide on Google in 2016 was “Powerball” the number one search engine word in Western Australia is “lotto”.
