Aussies’ dreams are as unique and diverse as the country itself, as previous Oz Lotto division one winners have proven. 

With Tuesday night’s $50 million Oz Lotto draw offering the game’s equal biggest jackpot so far, this year, Australians have begun dreaming of what they would do if they were to become the country’s newest multi-millionaire. 

For some inspiration, we've taken a look back at some of the most unusual ways previous Oz Lotto division one winners have used their massive windfalls. 

For many, this is a new home for their family and never working again. While for others it can be something as simple as a new washing machine, a cleaner for their new home, or even a haircut! 

With up to one-in-six Australian adults expected to have an entry in the $50 million draw, we have no doubt many have begun their wishlist should they win this week’s Oz Lotto jackpot. 

Are these seven of the most Aussie Oz Lotto division one winners of all time? 

1. An endless smoko break 

A Melbourne construction worker in his 20s discovered he won $10 million in November 2018 while on a smoko break at work. He planned to down tools indefinitely. 

“I’m walking out of here. I won’t be going back to work after smoko,” he declared. 

“I’m walking out right now. I think everyone will come with me for a celebratory drink!" 

2. The simple things in life 

As the saying goes ‘the simple things in life are often the best’ and a Queanbeyan man proved just that! He ended his day with a bang after discovering his $5.5 million Oz Lotto win in March this year..  

“It’ll be Chinese takeaway and a few beers to celebrate tonight!” the winning man said. 

3. Winner culls cleaning 

After she bought her dream home, a Cairns woman who took home a $40 million Oz Lotto prize in June 2017 declared the next step would be to get a cleaner. 

“I’m going to get a cleaner because I don’t get too much time at home when things are going haywire,” she said. 

4. A winning cut 

Forget homes and holidays, for one young Darwin man who scooped a $3.3 million Oz Lotto prize in April 2017, the first thing he wanted to do was get a haircut. 

"I’m going to get a haircut!” the winner giggled, explaining it had been a while. 

“Ideally, I’d love to go on a one-week retreat and think about it in a constructive way. Tonight, I’ll be celebrating in the Darwin way however – with a couple of beers!” 

5. An A+ Aussie odyssey 

A Wollongong retiree couldn’t wait to embark on his Aussie adventure after discovering his Oz Lotto entry had scored a $7.5 million division one prize in November 2020. 

“I would love to travel around Australia. I could even update my caravan for the trip!” he said. 

6. Plenty of fish in the sea 

A Deception Bay man declared he couldn’t wait to wet a line at the world’s best fishing spots after discovering he was $2.1 million richer from an Oz Lotto win in November 2018.  

“Anywhere in the world I can fish, that’s where you’ll find me,” he rejoiced.  

7. A winning wash 

A family from regional Victoria looked forward to putting on their next load of whites after winning $35 million in Oz Lotto in August 2018. Their first purchases were going to be a brand new washing machine and a water tank. 

“We are going to get a new washing machine! We’ve been texting about it all night!” one of the family members shared.
