Weight, what? Oz Lotto’s $50 million jackpot would weigh more than the Eiffel Tower
Oz Lotto has been jackpotting for six weeks and is now offering a massive $50 million jackpot in Tuesday night’s draw!
While we’re sure people all over the country are dreaming about what they would do if they won that truckload of cash, $50 million is such an incredible prize that it can be difficult to fully fathom exactly how big it is.
To give you a better idea of just how massive this jackpot prize is, we’ve got a few interesting facts that help put it into perspective.
Some of them may surprise you!
Not so brief
An average briefcase fits $1 million worth of $100 notes. You’d have to stock up on 50 briefcases to store this Oz Lotto prize.
A load of trucks
With the average semi-trailer weighing in at 36 tonnes, it would take four and a half of these trucks to match the weight of $50 million in $2 coins.
The long win
If you put $50 million worth of $100 notes end to end, it would form a line long enough to lap the length of Bondi Beach 79 times!
Oh là là!
It would take one billion five cent pieces to make up $50 million. That amount of coins would weigh 15,500 tonnes— much heavier than the Eiffel Tower, which weighs in at only 10,100 tonnes.
A stack of $100 notes worth $50 million dollars would rise up 70 metres tall. That’s about ten times as tall as a giraffe!
Another dream could come true this Tuesday! Will we be calling you this week to break the news that you’ve won $50 million!?
