'One of the biggest jackpots so far': Australian punter could win $70million as huge Lotto prize rolls over.
The massive draw comes after nobody won the $50million division one prize which pushed the jackpot higher for the seventh week in a row. The last time the Oz Lotto reached $70million was March this year when three division one winners shared the spoils. Oz Lotto spokesperson, Matt Hart, said up to one-in-four Australian adults were expected to enter next Tuesday's draw. 'Seventy million dollars is an eye-catching prize and one of the biggest jackpots we've seen so far in 2019. It's certainly more than enough to make some Aussie dreams a reality,' Mr Hart said.
