Lotteries spokesperson Elissa Lewis reminded players to get in early to avoid queues later in the day and missing out on the chance to win $60 million.
“Anticipation has been building as the Oz Lotto division one prize pool has been jackpotting for six consecutive weeks to reach $60 million, the biggest lotto prize offered in Australia this year,” Ms Lewis said.
“If only one winner claims the entire $60 million first division Oz Lotto prize, they will claim the title of the single biggest lotto winner in Australian history.

“It is also the biggest Oz Lotto jackpot since December 2013, when an entire $70 million division one prize pool was won by a private syndicate of ‘ladies who lunch’ from Runaway Bay, Queensland.
“If the $60 million division one prize pool eludes Oz Lotto hopefuls tonight it will jackpot to $80 million for next Tuesday’s draw on 25 August!
“To participate in tonight’s Oz Lotto draw, players have the option of selecting their own numbers by marking a coupon, purchasing a QuickPick where the numbers are selected for you randomly from the lottery terminal or sharing the cost of a larger entry by creating a syndicate with colleagues or family,” Ms Lewis added.
“Players around the country are picking their favourite numbers for what they hope will match the seven winning Oz Lotto numbers that are drawn from the barrel in tonight’s draw.
“Registering your Oz Lotto entries to your player card not only means any prize won is registered to your name, but it also means you’ll receive that dream-come-true phone call telling you the amazing news of a first division win!”
