Only hours remain until the biggest draw of the year...Oz Lotto's $50 million draw takes place tonight!

Tuesday 1 May, 2012 - Following seven weeks of jackpotting, the biggest draw of 2012 will take place this evening (Tuesday 1 May) with the Oz Lotto $50 million jackpot draw.

Golden Casket spokesperson Elissa Lewis advises Oz Lotto hopefuls to ensure they purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

“Selling into this evening’s $50 million Oz Lotto draw closes at 7.30pm, however not all newsagencies open late on Tuesday evening, so it is advisable to pick up your entry as early as you can to avoid missing out,” Ms Lewis said.

“This is the biggest draw to date in 2012 so we expect Golden Casket retailers will have a busy afternoon selling tickets, there may even be queues of people waiting to purchase their chance at winning a share of the $50 million Oz Lotto jackpot.

“Along with the $50 million jackpot in tonight’s Oz Lotto draw there are thousands of other divisional prizes
to be won,” Ms Lewis added.

If one Queensland winner scoops the entire $50 million jackpot in tonight’s Oz Lotto draw they will come close to gaining the title of the state’s biggest lotto winner, just shy of the record win of $53 million in 2009!

Oz Lotto players are reminded to register their Oz Lotto ticket to their Golden Casket Winners Circle card to
protect their prizes.

“By registering your Oz Lotto ticket to your Winners Circle card, not only do you protect your prizes but should you be a shareholder in the $50 million jackpot, Golden Casket will contact you directly with the good news,” Ms Lewis added.

The $50 million Oz Lotto draw will be broadcast on Channel 7 at approximately 8.30pm. The results of the draw will be available here on the Golden Casket website, following the draw.
