Seven saucy jackpots snagged so far this year: Is Oz Lotto set for a winning streak?
We’re just five months into 2022 and already, seven Oz Lotto entries have snagged a ripper division one prize.
From Rockhampton to Queanbeyan, wherever those winning entries have landed, there’s been a thrilled Aussie who’s become an overnight multi-millionaire.
Notably, some small towns are making a big name for themselves as a multi-million-dollar Oz Lotto win puts them on the map.
Nabiac, in New South Wales, has a population of just over 1,500, but one of those residents has claimed a division one prize.
Meanwhile, the small coastal town of Sarina in North Queensland may be surrounded by sugar cane fields, but for one young local woman, nothing is quite as sweet as a $10 million Oz Lotto win.
So far this year, our Oz Lotto division one winners have collectively scooped $98,978,550.79 in prize money, setting them up for a lifetime of Big. Aussie. Fun. And with plenty more draws to come this year, we’re eager to see just how big those jackpot prizes will get.
Plus, exciting game upgrades are just around the corner and set to deliver bigger prizes and more winners!
