Who will make Australian lottery history with Lucky Lotteries’ over? $60 million windfall?
With Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot today cracking more than $60 million, whoever takes home this mind-blowing jackpot will rewrite Australian lottery history.
As there is no sharing of prizes with Lucky Lotteries, the next Mega Jackpot jackpot prize winner will automatically become the nation’s third-biggest individual lottery winner.
The current record for the biggest Australian lottery winner was set in January this year when a Sydney woman scored an eye-popping $107.5 million Powerball prize.
The nation’s second biggest prize was won by a Hervey Bay couple in 2016 who took home a $70 million prize.
During recent months, Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot has continued to smash records, and today the jackpot prize surpassed $60 million for the first time in the game’s 88-year history.
As the jackpot has continued to climb, we’ve seen increasing interest in Lucky Lotteries, prompting individual draws to sell out within 24 hours.
In fact, on some days we have multiple draws as more and more Aussies vie for the chance to land that multi-million dollar prize.
The frequent draws mean our next Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot winner could be crowned any day now.
Remember, Lucky Lotteries is unique as it is a raffle-style jackpotting game with a set amount of numbers in each draw. Once those numbers have been sold, the draw takes place.
While we don’t know when the jackpot will be won, what we do know is that whoever wins it will take the whole lot and enter Australian lottery history books.
The current Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot record is held by a woman from Sydney’s northern suburbs who won a whopping $38.185 million in 2011.
While the jackpot has climbed higher after each Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw, it has delivered a guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 to one player in every draw.
So far this year, there have been 107 Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draws – almost one a day – that have delivered $21.4 million in 1st Prizes to winners.
