2 min read
This Thursday 19 September will be one for the record books! It’s Australia’s largest jackpot ever – $150 million Powerball. Imagine what you could do with $150,000,000.
While last week’s $100 million Powerball draw 1217 had no winners, there were eight Division 2 winners, including one Oz Lotteries customer! They each take home $173,767.85.
The previous record jackpot amount for Australian lotteries was for Oz Lotto at $112 million. The draw took place in November 2012, and had four winners. The lucky millionaires were families from Queensland, ACT and Victoria, and a Syndicate of 80 people.
However, the current record for the largest individual lottery win remains with a Sydney healthcare worker. She won over $107 million in January this year with Powerball.
Don’t miss your chance to be part of Australian history with the largest lottery win ever!
Our recent winners
There were $10,787,153 in prizes won last month via the Oz Lotteries website and App.
In July 2019, Australian lotteries hit a new record, with a $110 Million Powerball draw. The jackpot saw three lucky Division 1 winners, including one lucky Oz Lotteries customer taking home over $36.6 million.
The Sydney woman had been playing lotteries for 7 years. She was stunned when she received a phone call asking how she was feeling about the win.
“Perfect, a little bit surreal and don’t quite believe it yet. Just taking one step at a time. Until it’s here it doesn’t feel real. I am excited but just feels unreal at the moment.”
