With Tuesday’s Oz Lotto jackpot reaching its highest level in more than a year, lottery officials have revealed the most and least drawn numbers.
The $50 million jackpot is the third-highest prize offered by any Australian lottery this year.
During the past five draws, no entry has held the seven winning numbers in a single game panel needed to score Oz Lotto’s life-changing division one prize, which pushed it to $50 million for tomorrow night’s draw.
The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said that with $50 million up for grabs in this week’s Oz Lotto draw, up to one-in-six Australian adults were expected to have an entry.
“With a steady stream of Oz Lotto division one winners so far this year, the game’s jackpot has remained relatively low until now,” said Mr Hart.
“We haven’t seen an Oz Lotto $50 million prize since July last year. This prize was pocketed by a North Sydney woman who had bought her winning ticket while holidaying with friends,” he added.
According to winning data from The Lott during the past 16 years, the most frequently drawn Oz Lotto numbers were 33, 27, 25 and 40.
While the most least frequently drawn Oz Lotto numbers during the same time were 10, 24, 42 and 18.
Winner will be Australia's third-biggest lottery winner in 2021
“If one player takes home the Oz Lotto loot this week, they’ll not only get a massive multi-million-dollar boost to their bank balance but also share the title of Australia’s third-biggest lottery winner in 2021,” said Mr Hart.
“Imagine how your plans for the rest of 2021 and the rest of your life might be rewritten with a $50 million prize.”
So far this year, there have been 13 Oz Lotto division one wins across Australia worth more than $197 million.
New South Wales and Victoria have each scored four division one wins, Western Australia has enjoyed three, while Queensland and Northern Territory have had one each.
Mr Hart said that if you want to become $15 million richer, you’ll first need to have an entry, so make sure you have your ticket before the draw closes at 7:30pm AEST on Tuesday night.
“We will be on standby to break the life-changing news to any registered division one winners straight after the draw, but to do that players need to register their entries to a player card or online account,” he said.
Oz Lotto draw 1446 closes at 7:30pm AEST on Tuesday, November 2, with tickets available for purchase at any licensed lottery outlet, online from thelott.com or via The Lott mobile app.
'Is this legit?' Gold Coast mum crowned $30 million Oz Lotto winner
A young Gold Coast mum has revealed she was enjoying a late night cup of tea when she realised she had won the $30 million Oz Lotto Jackpot.
The lucky woman, in her 30s and living in Burleigh, said she swapped her cuppa for something a little stronger following the life-changing win.
“I actually checked the draw results before, but they weren’t ready, so I went and had a shower,” she said.
“It’s amazing,” she said.
The ecstatic woman said she, like many Australians, has had “such a strange year” due to the coronavirus pandemic and the win was sure to turn things around for her family.
“Our family’s lives have been turned upside down,” she said.
“But with this, we can set ourselves up, set our kids up, set our family up. It will change our lives, and we’ll want to share that kindness with others,” she added.
She went on to add: “It’s a lot to take on board.”
The winning numbers were 27, 42, 31, 38, 37, 3 and 39, while the supplementary numbers were 17 and 10.
