The luck has turned for one incredibly fortunate Victorian who has picked up a massive $20 million lotto win.
The sole winner scooped the major Oz Lotto prize after it doubled from last week’s $10 million.
The Lott announced the exciting news about the draw 1387 winner on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
“A winning entry from VIC has won the entire $20M #OzLotto jackpot in tonight's draw 1387,” the tweet read.
The winning numbers were 18, 44, 31, 41, 2, 10 and 36, and the supplementary numbers were 5 and 23.
The news follows a man from Brisbane’s $1 million Gold Lotto win after playing the same numbers for 20 years.
A group of seven friends from Sydney also have cause for celebration after winning Saturday Lotto’s division-one prize.
The private syndicate held one of the eight division-one winning entries across the country, with each entry winning a division-one prize of $621,499.92.
In addition to winning division one, the group’s marked System 7 entry also scored division three six times, bolstering the total windfall to $629,280.42.

“I feel sick. I’m shaking. Oh my god. I had no idea. I’ve been slack checking my ticket,” the syndicate leader told lotto officials on Monday.
“It’s amazing. There’s seven of us in it. We’ve had this syndicate for about two-and-a-half years. It’s paid off! That’s about $90,000 each.”
The woman broke the news to her friends via video call and said she planned to put the money towards buying her first home.
“This is amazing. They’re going to be so happy,” she said.
