For the first time in 2023, Oz Lotto has jackpotted to $50 million! Not only does this cracking jackpot prize come just in time for the festive season, but it’s also set to round out an already huge year for the game.

So far in 2023, there have been 13 Oz Lotto division one winning entries that have collectively taken home more than $233 million in division one prize money. From Burnie and Gladstone to Adelaide and Taree — jackpot wins have landed in all corners of the country.

So, if you’re wondering why we haven’t seen a $50 million Oz Lotto jackpot since October 2022, it’s because Aussie players have been quick to keep the multi-million-dollar wins coming!

However, after no player has had all seven winning numbers needed to win division one for the last seven weeks, the anticipation is building for Tuesday night’s draw.

Before this jackpot joyride really amps up, we’ve been crunching the numbers to reveal the Aussie regions where the most division one lottery wins landed this year.

While a lottery win can land anytime, and anywhere, we’ll be watching to see if Oz Lotto’s $50 million prize goes to one of these hotspots – or if the jackpot will continue its climb!

Some players tell us they deliberately pick outlets that have recently sold a major lottery prize in the hope of continuing the winning streak, while other players look elsewhere, believing lightning won’t strike twice.

However you like to play, you need to be in it for the chance to win it. We can think of 50 million reasons to make sure you have your Oz Lotto entry this week.

Oz Lotto’s $50 million draw 1556 is on Tuesday 12 December 2023. We’re expecting it to be busy in store and online, so make sure to grab your entry before the draw closes 7:30pm AEST. 

Good luck!
