Launching into a winning New Year: 17 entries share Megadraw prize
Thanks to Lotto’s massive New Year’s Eve Megadraw, a crew of Aussie winners are starting 2022 sharing a huge $40 million division one prize!
The special event attracted plenty of buzz with 1 in 3 adult Australians making sure to have their entry into the draw. As the winning numbers were revealed, we were thrilled to see 17 division one winning entries take out the top prize and pocket $2.3 million each.
Here’s how the numbers rolled and the mega-wins landed:
- Seventeen winning entries shared the $40 million division one prize, scoring $2,352,941.18 each.
- Fourteen of those winning entries made overnight multi-millionaires, while three went to thrilled syndicates who shared their slice of the division one prize.
- The wins landed right across the country, with five from New South Wales, four from Queensland and two each from the ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
- There were also more than four million winning entries in divisions two to six. Make sure you check your ticket to see if you scored a prize!
- The winning numbers in draw 4221 on 31 December 2021 were 32, 14, 15, 8, 43 and 20, while the supplementary numbers were 35 and 31.
We can’t think of a better way to bring in the new year than discovering you’re a multi-millionaire!
One Westlake man revealed how his winning discovery elevated his New Year’s Eve celebrations.
“Funnily enough, on New Year’s Eve, we just thought we’d check my ticket,” the Queenslander said.
“My wife checked it and said, ‘you’ve won division one, you’ve won $2,300!’. But that didn’t sound right, so we looked again, and it actually said $2.3 million!
“The New Year’s Eve party just continued after that. We didn’t get to bed until 2.30am, and then we got up at 5am on New Year’s Day.”
For other winners, they’re coming to terms with how their win will change their year ahead.
“I don’t have a house of my own, but that might change this year,” a Bathurst man explained.
“I also really want to help my mum. She’s done a lot for me and I want to make sure she’s looked after.”
Congratulations to all our Megadraw winners!
