Beginner’s luck proved a real thing this morning, when the $50 million Oz Lotto winner was finally found. The lady from North Sydney was the only Division 1 winner, taking out the entire $50 million.
She had been on holiday in Sussex Inlet when her first ever lottery ticket was purchased. Not only was it her first, but it was the winning! When it was realised that the winner hadn’t yet been found, her friend called and said “I think the newsagency you bought your Oz Lotto ticket from sold the $50 million winning entry”
After the call she jumped online to check her ticket and lo and behold, she’d done it. She was lost for words after finding out about her new wealth. She managed to get out a few un-repeatable words (as you would!), before saying “I can’t believe it. I’m shaking. Jesus Christ. This is incredible!”. She paced around her house in complete shock. She kept saying “I think I’m going to have a heart attack!”.
When she was asked what she might do with her winnings she laughed “I have no idea right now, honestly I cannot think straight”. The humble Sydney woman said “I’ll definitely keep working, but oh my goodness, I just don’t know!”.
Congratulations to the lucky winner and we wish her all the best!
The $50 million Oz Lotto has been the biggest Oz Lotto jackpot this year, of course one by the lovely Sydney woman. Prior to this, there was an $80 million Oz Lotto in June 2019, making it the third largest jackpot in the games 25 year history! It was won by two Queenslanders, who took home $40 million each.
The winning numbers of this $50 million Oz Lotto were: 12, 9, 13, 7, 32, 5, 4 with supplementary numbers 19 and 35. You win a prize with a minimum of 3 main numbers and 1 supplementary.
Although there was just one Division 1 winner, there were still 925,102 other winners on Tuesday 7 July, 2020.
Because Division 1 had a winner, the Oz Lotto jackpot has now gone back to $2,000,000. You can purchase your Oz Lotto tickets here.
Best of luck and congratulations to the lucky winner!
