Almost here! $100 million Oz Lotto jackpot is tomorrow night!

Monday 5 November, 2012 - The eagerly awaited record-breaking $100 million Oz Lotto draw takes place tomorrow night, following the festivities of Melbourne Cup Day.

Golden Casket Spokesperson Elissa Lewis said public anticipation of the draw has been felt around the country.

“We’ve never seen a guaranteed jackpot level of this amount, so excitement has been steadily building throughout the past week,” Ms Lewis said.

“This record-breaking Oz Lotto draw coinciding with what is traditionally a very important event for Australians – Melbourne Cup Day – is a very unique set of circumstances, and you can feel the hope and expectation in the air.”

Golden Casket outlets are expected to be especially busy today and tomorrow, selling entries to customers hoping to match those seven winning numbers drawn tomorrow night.

“Approximately 7.5 million entries will be purchased in the $100 million Oz Lotto jackpot nationwide; that’s around one in two Australian adults. Some retailers are preparing for the flood of business by taking on extra staff and opening longer hours to cater for high volumes of customers in the lead up to the draw,” Ms Lewis said.

“Our advice is to race in and beat the rush that will gain momentum this afternoon.” Golden Casket reminds players to register their entries to their Winners Circle Card for added security and the benefit of being personally contacted if they win a division one prize.

“Registering your Oz Lotto entries to your Winners Circle Card not only means any prize won is recorded in your name, but it also means you’ll receive that dream-come-true phone call telling you the amazing news of a first division win!”

Selling into Oz Lotto’s jaw-dropping $100 million jackpot draw closes at 6.30pm tomorrow night. The draw will be televised on Channel Seven at approximately 8.40pm and the results will be available online at shortly following the draw.
