What better way to kickstart a New Year than winning a division one prize in Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw on Saturday 2 January 2021, but how do you think you’d react to the news?

Would you scream expletives at the top of your lungs, or would you be left completely lost for words?

Here at The Lott we’ve seen it all, and yet the reactions from our players still manage to bring smiles to our faces, and in some cases, tears to our eyes.

We’re gearing up for the one draw that’s famous for crowning the most millionaires – Megadraw – by looking back at some of our favourite reactions from previous Megadraw winners.

Complete and utter shock 

Back in 2014, a couple from Brisbane’s southside were rendered speechless at the news they'd won a $1.4 million Megadraw prize.

The surprised winners were completely oblivious to their win until we called to deliver the life-changing news.

All they could only manage to utter was: “This is not a prank call is it?”.

Am I seeing things?

There were 23 division one entries across Australia in 2016’s $30 Million Megadraw, and one of our best reactions came from a woman in the western suburbs of Adelaide.

After celebrating the New Year a little bit too hard, the Oaklands Park local was still recovering and a bit sceptical when she checked her entry and realised she'd circled all six winning numbers.

“My first reaction was it can’t be real! This sort of thing just doesn’t happen to us! I had to double check, triple check!”

Where’s the ticket?!

A pair of Boondall brothers had a moment of panic as they scrambled to locate their winning Megadraw ticket that won them an epic $1.7 million in 2018! 

Once they managed to get their hands on their entry, they took a collective sigh of relief and could finally get excited.

“That’s good! That’s awesome,” one brother exclaimed when the winning news was confirmed. 


A division one win in the upcoming Megadraw could make you scream and shout or leave you breathless.

Whatever your reaction, we can’t wait to hear it!

As the old saying goes, you do need to be in it for the chance to win it so we’re encouraging players to get in early.

Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw takes place on Saturday 2 January 2021!

Make sure you secure your entry at your local retailer, online at thelott.com or via The Lott app. Draw closes 7:30pm AEST. 

Good luck!
