Oz Lotto Top Prize Hits $30 Million
Last Updated: Monday 15 August 2016, 11:03 am
Excitement is building ahead of this Tuesday’s Oz Lotto draw, with the Division 1 prize on offer set to be a guaranteed $30 million. The top prize has been steadily growing since a single ticket holder from the Gold Coast won a sum of $20 million on Tuesday 5th July.
Last Tuesday's draw did see an amazing ten players win $23,769 each when they matched six main numbers and one of the two Supplementary numbers. The lucky ticket holders were the largest number of second division winners since an astonishing 20 players each won a slice of a $402,321 prize on Tuesday 24th May this year. In the most recent Oz Lotto draw, there were a further 412,431 players who won prizes ranging from $14.60 for matching three main numbers and a Supplementary number to $3,707 for matching six main numbers.

Oz Lotto fans have been treated to a number of large Division 1 prizes this year, with the last winner of a $30 million prize coming on the 2nd of February. There have also been two winners of $40 million prizes, occurring on the 22nd of March and the 24th of May. However, with no recent sizeable prizes, this Tuesday's draw could spark interest from every corner of the land as ticket holders aim to make this August truly unforgettable.
The prize total, despite its tremendous size, still has some way to go if it is to topple the largest division one prize in the game’s history which stands at well over $111.9 million. The massive reward was claimed by four ticket holders in the draw on Tuesday 6th November 2012 and remains the biggest prize ever offered by an Australian lottery. With the four-year anniversary of this event hoving into view, Oz Lotto fans are still waiting to see a sum as large, but should this current total continue to roll over, that record could be under threat sooner rather than later.
Oz Lotto isn’t the only game to offer a huge jackpot this week. The Saturday Lotto top prize jackpotted for the first time in six years after no one was able to claim this weekend’s Division 1 prize, and players will now have the chance to win a sum of $8 million this Saturday.
If you would like to be in with a chance of winning either of these stunning prizes, tickets are available to purchase online or from any authorised retailer throughout the country. Best of luck!
