Two Oz Lotteries Members Win Division 1
2 min read
Oz Lotteries continues its streak of creating big lotto winners online after two members both won Division 1 in the past week. The two wins come hot on the heels of the $50,000,000 Powerball draw on the 11th of May, where the sole winner also bought his ticket online and scooped the entire jackpot.
The first winner was a man in his 60s from Sydney who won a million-dollar prize in the $1,000,000 Wednesday Lotto draw on the 10th of May. The second winner, a man in his 20s from Melbourne, won over $2.6 million after his System 9 ticket won a Division 1 prize in the $21,000,000 Superdraw on the 13th of May.
Both winners purchased their winning tickets online from Oz Lotteries. We certainly shared their excitement when they both became millionaires last week! Oz Lotteries has a dedicated Customer Support team that contacts all winners to let them know the good news of a big lotto win.
The man who won the $50,000,000 Powerball jackpot received the phone call that would change his life just minutes after the draw on Thursday night. The call just happened to come during a discussion with his wife about their future plans following months of struggle, and the man simply couldn’t believe what lottery officials were telling him.
“No way!” he exclaimed. “Don’t tell me that! Are you serious, man?”
After asking them to hold on as he took a deep breath, the winner then confirmed the news: “There was only one winner and it’s me? Is that what you’re saying?”
“Oh my God, I can’t believe it!”
The amazing news came at just the right time. The man revealed he had been unemployed since the end of 2016. His wife cried tears of joy in the background. Meanwhile, the winner explained to lottery officials how they had been discussing what to do with their lives and their future. A whole new world of opportunity had opened up right in front of them.
“It’s life-changing. I’ll share it with my family and friends. If I’m winning, I want everybody along with me to win. I genuinely want to help people.”
He said that his passion was to open a restaurant. With plans to give 50% of the food away for free to people who need it. “I don’t need profits. But there are homeless, students who are struggling, and people in need.”
The winning 24-game Quickpick was purchased online. And it was the only ticket in the draw to match all 6 numbers plus the Powerball. The winning numbers from Powerball draw 1095 on the 11th of May were 26, 36, 10, 23, 19, and 21, plus Powerball number 10.
You could be Australia’s next multi-millionaire! You can buy your official Oz Lotto ticket online up until 7:25pm AEST on the day of the draw. Remember – you have to be in it to win it!
