Last Updated: Monday 22 August 2016, 11:26 am
Oz Lotto players have a bumper $40 million to play for on Tuesday night, the third time the Division 1 prize has reached such a high amount in 2016. The total has been rising since Tuesday 5th July, when a construction worker from the Gold Coast banked $20 million and promptly quit his job, pledging to spend his days on the golf course.
A $40 million Oz Lotto prize was won on Tuesday 24th May by a player from Leongatha in Victoria, with a family from Harvey in Western Australia winning the same amount on Tuesday 22nd March, allowing them to take it easy after working 15 hours a day, seven days a week for the past decade.
If you want a chance to change your life forever, you can play Oz Lotto online at the Buy Tickets page or by visiting authorised retailers across Australia. The Oz Lotto results are updated on Australia.National-Lottery.com soon after the draws take place.
At the weekend, Saturday Lotto offered a top prize of $8.7 million after it jackpotted for the first time in six years. There were four winners in draw 3661 on Saturday 20th August, each collecting $2.1 million. The winning numbers were 8, 16, 23, 34, 42 and 45 with Supplementaries 3 and 44 and you can find the full prize breakdown at the Lottery Results page.
This week’s Division 1 pool is worth $4 million and you can also get hold of entries for Saturday Lotto, also known as Tattslotto, X Lotto and Gold Lotto, in the Buy Tickets section. Good luck!
