Jackpot fever strikes ahead of $30 million OZ Lotto draw

Flu season might be over but it seems jackpot fever has well and truly gripped the people of Perth ahead of tonight’s $30 million OZ Lotto jackpot.

It’s the second highest OZ Lotto jackpot the state has experienced so far this year and comes after no one across the nation has been able to match the seven winning numbers needed to take out the prize pool.

Lotterywest spokeswoman Chloe Lawler said the organisation expected to sell almost 300,000 tickets in the lead up to tonight’s draw.

“During our peak hour of sales Lotterywest retailers will be churning out over 300 tickets every minute,” Ms Lawler said.

“We’ve experienced unprecedented Lotto luck across the last few months so it’s no wonder players are getting behind this jackpot,” she added.

The mammoth jackpot comes as it was revealed a 10 person syndicate from Collie took out more than $1.6 million in Saturday Superdraw prize money across the weekend.

“We also had a Monday Lotto winner overnight,” Ms Lawler said.

“The winning ticket was sold at Northampton News and is worth $1 million,” she added.

It’s expected that sales in tonight’s $30 million OZ Lotto jackpot will return more than $1.6 million to the state through Lotterywest grants.

Players have until 6pm today to purchase tickets in-store, through Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest app.
