1 min read
Australia had not one, but two jackpot winners in May’s $15 million Oz Lotto! The winners both won Division 1 in draw 1265, on Tuesday May 15th – each taking home an impressive $7.5 million.
One lucky winner from Ringwood, VIC, was ecstatic after checking his ticket before work and discovering he had the winning numbers. When asked what he had in mind for the winnings, the man excitedly replied:
“I don’t actually don’t know! We’ve just gone crazy celebrating. We just got married a few weeks ago so it’s great timing. It’s just unbelievable! It’s perfect timing – we can just relax.”
His winning numbers resulted from an 18 standard game ticket. The lucky ticket was a combination of his favourite numbers and Quickpick numbers.
The man was overjoyed and happy to learn that he shared the winning feeling with another deserving ticket holder from Western Australia.
The second division one winner, a FIFO worker, couldn’t believe his luck and was thrilled that he didn’t need to keep up his typical 13 hour work days. The joint winner has big plans for his $7.5 million prize, hoping to take his mum on a cruise and spend more time with his family. Finally, after a well-deserved break, the WA man dreams of opening an animal refuge.
“It’s hard going and it’s time to take a break now. Family is number one and I can spend more time with them – life is looking rosy.”
In the last financial year, Australia has had more than 415 Division 1 prize winners, with the official lotteries producing more than $2 billion in prizes and 203 new millionaires. Could you be next?
