- Oz Lotto pulled a $30 million jackpot on Tuesday
- A Western Australian won the division one award
An unsuspecting Aussie just made $30 million richer this year from the biggest Oz Lotto draw.
The Western Australian player has become the only Division 1 winner of Oz Lotto’s $30 million draw 1521.
Registrations for the draw closed at 7.30pm on Tuesday evening before the results were announced at 8.30pm.
The winning numbers were 19, 47, 15, 46, 12, 9 and 21 with the additional numbers 16, 34 and 30.
Tuesday’s first division winner has joined a string of recent lucky lottery players across WA – including a ticket holder who won the full $40 million Powerball jackpot in March.
Oz Lotto draws its biggest jackpot worth $30 million on Tuesday night at 8:30 PM
The winner of the Oz Lotto purchased his ticket online from the state’s lottery service, Lotterywest. The winner has not been publicly announced.
“We are thrilled to welcome another major win for WA just a few weeks after we celebrated a Swan Valley family taking home $40 million worth of Powerball,” said Lotterywest CEO Ralph Addis.
“The WA community is also a winner after tonight’s drawing, with over $1.27 million raised thanks to players during the five-week jackpot roll that will contribute to our scholarship program.”
Another six players took home $64,355.20 from the division two prize pool and an additional 88 division three winners received $5,185.65 each.
Two of those division two players were also Western Australians who bought their tickets through Lotterywest.
The jackpot was the largest offered by Oz Lotto so far this year, matched only by this week’s Powerball draw for the country’s biggest lottery prize.
“This week, Aussies have the chance to win $30 million twice, with both Oz Lotto on Tuesday night and Powerball on Thursday night offering this massive prize,” Lott spokesman Matt Hart said.
Tickets for Oz Lotto draw 1521 are available online or at recognized lotteries until 7:30 PM
If a winner of the first division is announced on Tuesday, he will be the winner of the sixth division of 2023.
“As we head into the cooler months, your plans for the future could only heat up with an Oz Lotto prize of this magnitude,” Hart said.
“We’ve had a steady stream of Oz Lotto Division One wins so far this year, which is why we haven’t seen the jackpot go up too high… until now.
This $30 million prize is the highest Oz Lotto has reached so far in 2023.
Will we have another 1st Division winner this week or will the Oz Lotto jackpot move higher for next week’s draw? Time will tell.’
Aussies who want to try Oz Lotto can pick seven numbers between one and 47 or opt for a QuickPick, which picks the numbers for you.
Oz Lotto said the most drawn numbers last year were 9, 37, 27, 5 and 24, while the least drawn numbers were 26, 15, 43, 35 and 34.
All five first division winners, who collectively took home $63 million, claimed their prizes from QuickPick tickets this year.
Tickets for Tuesday’s draw were available online or at recognized lotteries until 7:30 p.m.
Registered jackpot winners will be contacted by The Lott after the draw at 8.30pm.
Unregistered players must check their tickets themselves and contact The Lott to begin the claim process.
Ticket holders can check their numbers online, at authorized lottery outlets or on The Lott app.
