Two’s company: the dynamic duos who’ve won big!
Abbott and Costello, Sherlock and Watson, Kath and Kim— we love a dynamic duo. But even more, we love a winning duo!
Whether it’s two colleagues, best mates, or close family members, it’s always an absolute delight to discover our major prize winners are part of a pair.
We’ve been fortunate enough to hear from quite a few prize-winning partners. Check out some of our favourites below — these winners are truly two of a kind!
Workmates clock off early after $15 million Oz Lotto win
After years of working together and travelling together, two central Queensland mates continued to be inseparable by becoming multi-millionaires together!
They scored an incredible Oz Lotto jackpot of $15 million, causing them to clock off work early to celebrate.
The hardworking duo confessed they wouldn’t be giving up their jobs completely, but they were already cooking up some exciting plans to enjoy their prize.
Redcliffe mum and daughter duo celebrate instant win
Plans for the future quickly got a whole heap more exciting for this mother-daughter pair after they landed an Instant Scratch-Its top prize win worth $50,000!
“We purchase Instant Scratch-Its tickets regularly. They’re my mum’s favourite,” the winning daughter shared.
“We always go halves in anything we win, so I started scratching, and before I knew it, we had one number left to scratch on the $50,000 line.
“We needed number 36 for the top prize, and when I realised we had it, I was in shock.
“I just yelled, ‘Mum! We won it!’.
“I want to finalise some payments, upgrade my car and go on my first holiday. I would love to go on a cruise.
“All my mum wants to do is go on a family trip down the coast with all of us, so we’re excited to do that.”
Best mates from Beaconsfield in disbelief
A weekly tradition of playing TattsLotto together led to an incredible division one prize for two long-time Victorian friends. One of the pair recounted the rollercoaster of emotions he went through when they learned the news.
“My best mate came to tell me first thing this morning! I was wondering what he was doing here so early!” he laughed.
“He told me I had to sit down, so I thought someone was sick or dying or something like that.
“I couldn’t believe it when he told me.”
Not only were the generous friends ecstatic to share their prize with each other, they also couldn’t wait to share it further with each of their families.
Who would you share a division one prize with? If you score a win with a mate, make sure to let them know it’s good news before you surprise them with a bombshell.
Australia’s official lotteries are available in-store, online, or via the official Lott app, and as these winners prove, two can play these games.
