New South Wales Player Wins $50 Million Oz Lotto Jackpot
Last Updated: Wednesday 8 July 2020, 12:57 pm
An Oz Lotto player has become $50 million richer after pocketing the jackpot on Tuesday 7 July. The wait has now begun for the winner to come forward and claim their eight-figure fortune.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were 4, 5, 7, 9, 12, 13 and 32, with supplementary numbers 19 and 35. Go to the Oz Lotto Results page to find out the value of all the prizes and how many winners there were in each division.
The single winner in Division 1 has not yet been identified, as it was an unregistered entry so there was no way to track down the ticket holder immediately after the draw. To help find the winner, officials have released the location where the ticket was purchased. It is the city of Shoalhaven in New South Wales.
Everyone in Shoalhaven who bought a ticket for the draw has been urged to check their entries. Lauren Cooney, spokesperson for lottery operator The Lott, said: “Imagine waking up this morning and going about your usual Wednesday chores with no idea you’ve won $50 million.
“It’s possible this mystery winner is still unaware they’re suddenly a multi-millionaire and maybe they’ve shown up to work this morning, when they could be resigning and planning an early retirement.”
The jackpot had been climbing for more than a month prior to Tuesday’s draw, having not been won since someone from Western Australia banked $2.4 million on 26 May. There have now been ten Division 1 winners in 2020.
$80 Million Powerball Jackpot
The big jackpots keep coming thick and fast this week, with an $80 million prize up for grabs in Thursday’s Powerball draw.
It is only the seventh time in Powerball history that the jackpot has reached this level, and it is thought that as many as one in four adults could buy a ticket for the draw.
