Wouldn’t it be nice…
Two lucky Aussies have woken up a whopping $35 million richer after each scooping division one in last night’s $70 million Oz Lotto jackpot – the biggest jackpot in five years!
A man from NSW and a mystery person from Victoria who is yet to discover their life-changing win, are now the country’s newest millionaires.

“Oh fair dinkum? You’re kidding?! That is the best news I’ve had in a long time. Hallelujah!” the man, aged in his 50s, exclaimed when contacted by an official from the Lott.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa! That’s hard to process. I’m speechless!
“That has blown me away. That is just great. Thank you, thank you, thank you – just awesome.”
Once the mind-blowing news began to sink in, the hardworking Lithgow man started to speculate how he might use his $35 million Oz Lotto windfall.
“It goes without saying I’ll be helping the kids out and I’m sure my retirement plans will be fast-tracked,” he said.
“I’ll tell you what – my next holiday will be at the pointy end of the plane!
“It still hasn’t sunk in yet. It has completely blown us away.”
The hunt is now on for the mystery second winner, who purchased their lucky ticket online.
The Lott says the contact details for the winner’s account were incomplete, so they have no way of confirming their life-changing news.
They’re now encouraging everyone in Victoria who purchased an online entry to check their account!
The wins kick-start a record-breaking week of Australian lottery jackpots with another $80 million up for grabs in Thursday’s Powerball draw.
