A stunned Mackay woman and a merry band of 10 Victorians have shared the $50 million Oz Lotto jackpot, creating a multitude of multi-millionaires along the eastern seaboard.

There were two division one winning entries in Oz Lotto draw 1446, drawn Tuesday 2 November 2021. The entries, one from Queensland and the other from Victoria, each scored $25 million.

Early retirement beckons for Mackay’s latest multi-millionaire

A Mackay mum has been bowled over by the bedtime revelation she’s now a newly minted multi-millionaire from Oz Lotto's latest draw.

In addition to winning division one, the woman’s System 8 QuickPick entry also scored division three 7 times, bolstering her total windfall to $25,025,538.45.

“Are you serious?” the shocked North Queenslander exclaimed when we reached out to her moments after the draw.

“Oh my god. I’ve won $25 million?!

“Holy sh**! This has got to be wrong!

“Oh my god. Honestly? This is crazy.

“This cannot be true. Oh my god. Are you sure it's me? Really? Are you sure? Is this real?

“This is crazy. This is so cool!

“It was a last minute decision to buy an entry. I cannot believe it.”

While still coming to terms with the life-changing news, the North Queenslander shared some initial plans for her prize.

“This changes everything for everyone! I can’t wait to help my family. This is wonderful,” she said.

“And I’ve always said I would retire if I won the lottery – it looks like that’s what I’ll be doing!”

The woman is the latest major lottery winner from the Mackay and Whitsundays region. So far this year, there have been five division one winning entries in the Mackay and Whitsundays region, collectively worth more than $78.2 million.

The winning woman purchased her System 8 QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
