Oz Lotto will draw its biggest jackpot this year, worth $30million, at 8.30pm on Tuesday night
The Oz Lotto winner bought their ticket from the state’s lottery service, Lotterywest, online.
‘We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome yet another big win for WA, only a few weeks after celebrating a Swan Valley family taking home $40 million in Powerball,’ Lotterywest CEO Ralph Addis said.
‘The WA community is also a winner following tonight’s draw, with more than $1.27 million raised thanks to players over the five-week jackpot roll which will contribute to our grants program.’
Another six players took home $64,355.20 from the division two prize pool and another 88 division three winners received $5,185.65 each.
Two of those division two players were also Western Australians who purchased their tickets through Lotterywest.
The jackpot was the largest offered by Oz Lotto so far this year, only equalled by this week’s Powerball draw for the country’s biggest lottery prize.
‘This week, Aussies have the chance to win $30million twice with both Oz Lotto on Tuesday night and Powerball on Thursday night offering this giant prize,’ The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said, Seven News reports.

If a first division winner is announced on Tuesday, they will become the sixth division one winner of 2023.
‘As we head into the cooler months, your plans for the future could be just heating up with an Oz Lotto prize of this magnitude,’ Hart said.
‘We’ve had a steady stream of Oz Lotto division one wins so far this year, which is why we haven’t seen the jackpot climb too high… until now.
‘This $30 million prize is the highest Oz Lotto has reached so far in 2023.
‘Will we have another division one winner this week or will the Oz Lotto jackpot soar higher for next week’s draw? Only time will tell.’
