Next week’s $80m is the highest jackpot in seven years

$80 million is up for grabs in Oz Lotto next Tuesday, after last night’s $70 million didn’t go off.

It seems no players held a division one winning entry in last night’s draw, which has now jackpotted to the highest level in seven years.

It’s the eighth consecutive week of a jackpot, so surely it’s going off next week!

While there were no entries that score the division one prize, a total of 1,086,052 winners won more than $24.93 million in division two to seven.

19 of those who scored a division two prize were just one number shy of division one.

They’ll each take home more than $37,000.

The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said with $80 million on offer next week, Australians could experience a flashback to 2012.

“The last time Oz Lotto sky-rocketed this high Australians were dancing to Psy’s  ‘Gangnam style’ and listening to Carly Rae Jespen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’,” she said.

“It was a big year for sport after Team Australia earned 35 medals at the London Olympics, Sydney Swans were crowned the champions in the AFL grand final and the Melbourne Storm took home the title in the NRL grand final.

“Kim Kardashian and Kanye West started dating as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes called it quits and Prince William and Kate Middleton announced they were expecting their first child.

“Back on home soil, 2012 saw Oz Lotto climb to a record-breaking $100 million – the last time the game offered a jackpot above $70 million.

“With up to one-in-four Australian adults expected to have an entry into the $80 million Oz Lotto draw next Tuesday, it is expected to be busy in outlets and online.

“With so many people getting their hands on an entry, we could be calling you maybe?”
