In case you missed it: Double jackpot delight! Oz Lotto and Powerball make new multi-millionaires in same week
It might have been a shorter working week, but Oz Lotto and Powerball packed a punch with both games crowning new division one winners!
Catch up on this week’s winning highlights:
Two $30 million prizes won in same week
Just when we were feeling relaxed after the long weekend, our jackpotting games were quick to throw us some thrills.
On Tuesday night, Oz Lotto’s $30 million jackpot was scooped up by a syndicate of golfing mates from Western Australia. There have now been six division one winning entries in Oz Lotto so far this year.
Not to be outdone, Powerball followed up with a $30 million win on Thursday night. The division one winning entry was held by a Camden man from New South Wales.
There were also heaps of prizes won across all other divisions in both Oz Lotto and Powerball. Make sure to check your tickets to see if you had a win!
Beaudesert battlers blindsided by $1 million win
While Powerball and Oz Lotto took us on a joyride, Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto caused an adrenaline rush of its own when it delivered a $1 million prize to an unsuspecting Beaudesert couple.
“Oh, you are joking!” the winning wife cried when we called to confirm their windfall.
“I’ve always dreamt of getting a phone call like this but never thought it would ever happen.
“Oh! My kids are going to have the best Christmas ever!”
Manly man’s life changes overnight
A Manly man was also in a whirlwind after he discovered his Monday & Wednesday Gold Lotto win. He confessed his mind has been endlessly racing since he checked his ticket and realised he was now a millionaire.
“I’m still in shock! Honestly, I haven’t stopped shaking since!” he said.
“I couldn’t believe it. I yelled out to the rest of my family, who were upstairs, and called them all down.
“It was such an incredible moment.”
Box Hill woman overcome by surprise TattsLotto win
Big wins cause big emotions, and sometimes the best way to handle it is with a little cry. That was certainly the case for our recent TattsLotto winner who was overwhelmed by her $580,000 win.
“At first, I thought I’d won over $500, but then I wiped my eyes as I was still sleepy and saw it was a lot more,” she said.
“I can’t believe it. I had a little cry.
“I’ve been playing for a long time. It’s just a hobby of mine, but at the back of my mind, I’ve always thought I’d win it one day. And my numbers have finally come out!”
It’s certainly been a rollercoaster week and we can’t wait to do it all again. Good luck!
