Woodridge family wins $5 Million in last night's Oz 7 Lotto draw

Wednesday 7 March, 2012 - A young family from Woodridge will be able to set themselves up for life, after their OZ 7 Lotto entry won the entire $5 million division one prize pool in last night’s draw.

The husband, who was not aware of his new multi-millionaire status until Golden Casket phoned him this morning, was breathless when told he was now a multi-millionaire.

“I’ve only been playing OZ 7 Lotto for a couple of years,” he said.

“Each week I buy two entries in the draw, one with my own numbers and the other a QuickPick.

“In the time that I’ve been playing, I’ve thought about what I’d do if I won division one.

“I’ll set up some investments to secure my young family’s financial future, and we’ll help our extended family as well.

“We’re only in our thirties so we’ll be able to make the most of this opportunity.”

The man purchased his winning 12 game QuickPick from Sunnybank Plaza News & Casket in the Sunnybank Plaza Shopping Centre.

Golden Casket Public Relations Executive Louise Azzopardi said last night’s win was the second division one OZ 7 Lotto win in Brisbane in the past three weeks.

“It follows a Brisbane city professional’s $15 million windfall in OZ 7 Lotto draw 939 on Tuesday 14 February,” she said.

“When asked what he planned to do with his multimillion dollar windfall, that winner also said he would invest for the future and help his extended family.”

The Woodridge family was the only division one winner in Australia in last night’s OZ 7 Lotto draw.

The winning numbers in OZ 7 Lotto draw 942 on Tuesday 6 March 2012 were 21, 41, 32, 5, 15, 29 and 7, with supplementary numbers 37 and 36.
