A life-changing $15 million jackpot is on the table after no one scooped the top prize in Tuesday night’s draw.
The jackpot hasn’t been at this level since May last year.
Oz Lotto has already made two people millionaires this year.
Matt Hart, The Lott spokesman, said the jackpot “has been quietly building in recent weeks as there have been no division one winners.
“It’s been almost a year since we’ve seen the Oz Lotto jackpot at this level.”
The winning numbers in Tuesday’s draw were 4, 6, 18, 21, 25, 30, 39. Supps were 40 and 10.
Five division two winners won $44,852.45 apiece, while 118 people claimed $3,912.85 in division three.
The last person to win $15 million was a Parramatta man who declared the prize was a “blessing”.
Adding to his surprise, the strong level of entries into that draw bolstered his final prize to $16.9 million.
“That’s almost $17 million. It’s unbelievable,” the man said at the time.
“I checked my ticket at the newsagency this morning and I was told they couldn’t pay out the prize. That’s when we realised I was last night’s winner.
“I went blank. I couldn’t think at all. It’s a blessing from the heavens above.
“I’ve been playing Oz Lotto for a very long time, marking the same numbers week after week. I never thought I would win a prize this big.”
In 2020, there were 24 division one winning Oz Lotto entries across Australia, collectively winning more than $234 million.
Of the 24 winners, eight landed in New South Wales, seven in Victoria, five in Western Australia, three in Queensland and one in South Australia.
