Oz Lotto Offers Biggest Prize of 2017
Last Updated: Monday 17 July 2017, 13:45 pm
A flurry of excitement is expected ahead of Tuesday night’s Oz Lotto draw after the First Division prize grew to a magnificent $50 million. It is the largest jackpot to have been seen on the game for almost two years and could create one of the biggest winners in the history of Oz Lotto.
The last time a larger prize was offered was on Tuesday 18th August 2015, when three players split $60 million. The current jackpot has been building since a young mother from Cairns in Queensland pocketed $40 million on 30th May, and a run of six draws without a winner has propelled the value to dizzying heights.
Retailers across the country are anticipating a surge of interest in the hours leading up to the draw, with Western Australia shops alone predicted to sell around half a million tickets. Lotterywest spokesperson Chloe Lawler said: “With the state now producing more than one Division 1 winner per week (across all Australian National Lottery games), there are 50 million reasons to grab a ticket in tomorrow night's jackpot.”
The lure of a $40 million jackpot last week helped to produce over 700,000 winners across the other six prize tiers, and you can visit the Oz Lotto Results section to find a full prize breakdown as you start to dream about how you might spend such a fortune.
If you want to become one of this week’s winners, and possibly grab the enormous First Division prize, you can choose your numbers online or go to any authorised retailer in Australia. Good luck!
