Australia Day weekend is now the favourite time of the year for one Oz Lotto winner. Draw 1092 on the 20 January 2015 saw two Oz Lotto customers win $10,000,000 each. One customer didn’t find out they were a millionaire until they checked his numbers six days later – on Australia Day!

Upon his return to Darwin, he saw on the news that there was a search for a local player, who had won Division 1. The winner knew that he had purchased his System 8 ticket at the same place as mentioned in the media. He checked his ticket numbers online – and was shocked to find out he held all 7 winning numbers.
“I think I checked it another ten times before I allowed myself to believe I’d won!”. Oz Lotto results on January 2oth were 2, 14, 15, 20, 28, 31, and 34. When asked what he planned to do with his winnings, the winners showed a lot of restraint and confirmed he did not plan on going on a spending spree or making any splurges, but instead has decided to invest the winnings wisely.
The second Division 1 winner was from Warilla, New South Wales. They had purchased a 50-game Quickpick ticket and after the draw was ticking off the numbers on his entry and “suddenly saw I had all the winning numbers lined up!”. The winner confirmed it was a shock, and he’ll never forget the feeling of winning Oz Lotto.
