The biggest Oz Lotto jackpot of the decade could be won tomorrow – but if you miss, an $ 80 million prize is also on the table.
A staggering $ 50 million could be yours tomorrow as the Oz Lotto jackpot hits its highest level in 10 years.
But if you miss the top prize, there’s another stack of cash on the cards as well, with Thursday night’s Powerball jackpot at an astounding $ 80 million.
That means over $ 130 million in total is up for grabs this week alone.

The Oz Lotto Prize is the result of a five-week jackpot, as no entry has held the seven winning numbers needed to score a life-changing division prize for Oz Lotto in over a month.
So far in 2020, there have been nine winning Oz Lotto Division 1 entries across Australia which have taken home a combined prize of $ 77,143,666 in Division One prizes.
Four of those Division 1 awards landed in New South Wales, three were won by Victorians and one each went to players from Queensland and Western Australia.
Lott spokeswoman Lauren Cooney said only time will tell where the next multi-million dollar Oz Lotto jackpot lands.
âWe expect one in six Australian adults to enter tomorrow night’s draw as the excitement builds for the game’s biggest jackpot of the year,â she said.
“A player could set the record tomorrow night as the biggest Oz Lotto winner of 2020.”
The biggest individual Oz Lotto prize that has been won so far in 2020 came in May when a man from Parramatta pocketed $ 16,917,396.
âThis award could certainly be largely replaced tomorrow night if one or more players win the Premier League at home,â Ms. Cooney said.
âYou need an entry to have a chance to win, so make sure you have your ticket before the draw closes at 7:30 pm AEST on Tuesday night.
âWe will be on standby to contact all registered Division 1 winners after the draw, but in order to do that, players must register their entries. We’ll be ready to potentially deliver the life-changing news Tuesday night. “
Tickets can be purchased at any authorized lottery outlet, online at thelott.com or through the Lott mobile app.
Meanwhile, Thursday’s Powerball will have a whopping $ 80 million prize money after last week’s $ 50 million jackpot failed to score a lucky winner.
It was predicted that one in six Australians would get their hands on a Powerball ticket last time around, and that number could climb even more this week as the excitement builds.
The final Division 1 Powerball winner was crowned in May when a man from Logan won $ 17 million and was planning to break the news to his family by pulling into the driveway in a new flash car.
But the biggest winner of that particular game this year was a man from Port Macquarie who pocketed $ 80 million. The first thing this incredibly lucky winner did was buy his own brand new TV.
