Two more lucky Australians were added into Lottoland’s growing list of millionaires after scoring a life changing win from a $5 bet on the US Millions Jackpot.
The Lottoland customers from Victoria and Western Australia both scored a whopping $1 Million pay-out, making them overnight millionaires after correctly matching 5 main numbers, which netted them a Division 2 win in the US Millions Jackpot.
It was an emotional win for one of the lucky Division 2 winners, who was fortunate enough to share the life changing moment with his mum.
“I was shocked and couldn’t believe my eyes!” said the winner.
“I received an email on Friday morning and told my mum straight away. Mum was getting teary and also shocked. I will never forget what happened.” The winner continued.
Both customers came up agonisingly short of a mind-boggling $350,000,000* win, after missing the final Super Number.
Had they matched the final number, they would have scored the largest online gambling pay-out in history, eclipsing the previous record of €90 million (AUD$137m) set by a German Lottoland winner in 2018.
Luke Brill, Chief Director at Lottoland Australia was thrilled with the result.
“We’re absolutely delighted for both of our winners,” said Mr Brill.
“There’s nothing we love to see more than our customers scoring a huge win and it’s even more special when they can share it with family.” Mr Brill continued.
Lottoland also recorded another Victorian winner on the US Power last week, taking home $50,000 in a win that should provide some joy after what has been a tough year.
