Get ready for $40 Million Oz Lotto on the 24th May! For the 2nd time in 2016, Oz Lotto jackpotted to a massive $40,000,000 – biggest Oz Lotto jackpot for the year so far. Can you just imagine how $40 million could change your life?!
For a West Australian family, who were the sole winners of the $40 Million Oz Lotto on 22nd of March 2016, the win was indeed life-changing. From working 15 hours a day, 7 days a week for the last 10 years to becoming multi-millionaires overnight, the father of the hard-working Aussie battler family was over the moon with joy.
“We haven’t been able to afford a house or a car… This changes all of that. It will change our lives for the better but it certainly won’t change us!” he said.
Once the family learned of their life-changing win, they were crying, shaking and dancing with joy and laughing all at once.
“I can finally secure a future for my children,” the man said, “We can get a home to call our own for the first time. And we can look forward to a few extras like upgrading to business class and ordering room service on our holidays!”

Choosing Your Ticket Type
A standard game is one line of numbers you select for each lotto game. Each standard game with 7 numbers offers you a chance of winning one prize. You also have the ability to select your numbers or Quickpick (auto-fill) each game.
A system ticket allows you to play more numbers that a standard entry, it gives you an entry covering every combination of the numbers you have chosen. This type of entry will increase your chances of winning by playing a bigger range of number combinations.
A syndicate ticket allows you to share system entries and prizes with other players. Syndicates allow you to cover more numbers by sharing the cost between the members of a group. Playing more games increases the chance of winning a prize. If the syndicate ticket wins a prize, the total winnings will be divided equally among all of the members of the syndicate.
