$20 million Oz Lotto win turns Melbourne man into full-time traveller!

Wednesday 24 August 2016 - The Oz Lotto truck has backed up and unloaded a $40 million truck load of cash this morning to two ecstatic players who are now both division one winners to the tune of $20 million!

The first player to get the wake-up call of a lifetime was a mysterious Melbourne man who admitted he’d been dreaming of winning division one since day dot.

“You know what, I’ve been waiting for a long, long time for you to call me!” he laughed.

“I logged on to my thelott.com account this morning, and thought someone’s won the bloody thing but I didn’t see the numbers right away so I thought I did no good.

“But then I looked at the results and thought hang on I’ve ticked all those numbers! Since then I’ve been in a state of flux all morning! I’m still a bit numb and the reality of all the possibilities is still to come.

“$20 million is just off the charts! It just opens up a pandora’s box of opportunities. We’ll just wait and see!

“I could certainly become a full-time traveller now!

“But I won’t be blowing the money I can guarantee you that. I’ll be making sure that everyone is well looked after for a long time and gets their dream.

“I’ve always said if I won money like that I would invest it in a term deposit for a little while and seek as much advice as I can so I don’t just throw it away.”

The newly-minted Melbourne multi-millionaire purchased his System 9 marked entry online via thelott.com. Thanks to his System entry type he won division one and additional divisional prizes totalling $20,049,938.00.

The Melbourne man wishes to remain anonymous and requests privacy as he begins his life-changing journey as a new multi-millionaire.

The second fortunate online player to wake up this morning as a new multi-millionaire purchased a 3-game marked Oz Lotto entry in New South Wales and is expected to be contacted today and also come to terms with winning their truck load of Oz Lotto cash!

Following six weeks of jackpotting, Tuesday night’s $40 million Oz Lotto jackpot was the equal largest Oz Lotto jackpot offered this year.

Along with the huge jackpot prize more than 725,471 prizes were won across Australia in divisions two to seven, sharing in a total prize pool of more than $14.23 million.
