Woo-hoo! 10 players from Humpty Doo share $35 million Oz Lotto prize!
A happy horde of 10 players from the town of Humpty Doo in the Northern Territory are today discovering they’re now each a multi-millionaire after their syndicate scored $35 million in last night’s Oz Lotto draw.
The 10-member store syndicate held the only division one winning entry nationally in Oz Lotto draw 1417 on Tuesday 13 April 2021. It’s the fourth division one win to land in the Northern Territory so far this year.
In addition to pocketing the $35 million division one prize, the syndicate also scored division three 21 times, division five 63 times, and division six 35 times, bolstering the total win to $35,093,777.25. Each of the 10 syndicate members receives a share worth $3,509,377.73.
This morning, we called some of the registered syndicate members, who were completely unaware they had become overnight multi-millionaires.
“Oh my god! Oh my god!” one of the syndicate members exclaimed when her win was revealed.
“Holy sh**! Thank you so much! I am in complete shock,” she said.
“My goodness, I never thought I would receive this call.
“It couldn’t have come at a better time. Maybe I can buy myself a new house.”
One syndicate member shared she almost didn’t buy her winning ticket.
“I can’t stop shaking! Are you kidding me?” she cried.
“I wasn’t even going to buy a ticket!
“I am going to upgrade my car and I want to travel around the whole world!
“I can’t believe I am a multi-millionaire! I don’t think I will ever stop crying. I need to compose myself!”
Another syndicate member started the day in the best possible way.
“I only just woke up! Are you kidding me?” he laughed.
“Holy moly! God, I love ya!
“I need a cup of tea to calm down.”
Some of the syndicate members are unregistered, which means we have no way of contacting them to deliver the multi-million-dollar news.

Humpty Doo Newsagency’s manager Helen said the winning Oz Lotto syndicate had been running for a few months.
“The syndicate is called Golden Oz! It’s been going for a few months and lots of our players are regulars,” she said.
“This is definitely the biggest prize this syndicate has won. It’s awesome!
“We’re so happy for them and wish them all the best! I’m sure they’ll enjoy it.”
