# Our biggest lottery winners of 2020

2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a lucky year for three Lottery Office players who walked away with big wins.

The Lottery Office gives you a chance to win from the draws of a variety of big US and European lotteries. When you buy a ticket in one of our lottery draws, we purchase a matching ticket in the corresponding international lottery. If you win, we pay you the exact same amount we collect overseas.

Let’s take a look back at 3 of our big winners of 2020…

### Sydney woman – only one number away from winning AUD\$500 million

Can you imagine being one number away from winning a record-breaking half a billion dollars? That’s exactly what happened to this Lottery Office player back on the 30th May 2020!

A Sydney woman needed to match one more number to win AUD\$500 million, but unfortunately the final number drawn was 51, and she needed number 50 in our matching USA Mega Lotto.

“If I won the full jackpot I would have retired and, after the pandemic, travelled the world,” she said.

The Concord West resident only started playing with The Lottery Office a month earlier. She won division 3 as a result the 30th May US Mega Millions draw and spent AUD\$23.50 to win AUD\$9,200.

The winning numbers were:
10, 13, 32, 41, 51 (3)

The customer’s numbers were:
10, 13, 32, 41, 50 (3)

To win division 3, you must match 4 numbers and the mega number, but to win division 1 you must match all 5 numbers and the mega number.

Even though she came so close to winning division 1, this lucky winner walked away grinning.

She plans to take her daughter to Hawaii once COVID-19 restrictions lift, and of course keep some aside for more lottery tickets!

When you buy a ticket in our USA Mega Lotto, we purchase a matching ticket in the Mega Millions draw in the USA. If you win, we pay you the exact same amount we collect from the overseas lottery.

### WA man takes out big US Powerball prize

“You’re joking, I can’t believe it”, were some of the first words from a WA Lottery Office player who won as a result of the US Powerball draw on the 31st of July last year.

The lucky player said “I’ve only just started playing with you guys. I still can’t believe that I won so fast”!

The WA man matched 4 main numbers and the Powerball to take out division 3 in our USA Power Lotto and was paid a huge AUD\$45,612.30.

Even after his win, the lucky player said he would continue to try his luck and play lottery with The Lottery Office. “I will keep playing, so maybe we will talk again”, he said.

### Queensland USA Power Lotto winner wins over AUD\$40,000

A 38 year-old Queensland woman took out division 3 as a result of a September 2020 US Powerball draw, in our matching USA Power Lotto. She won AUD\$42,000!

The woman from Redland was initially uncontactable, however when she was finally delivered the news she was over the moon. Some of her first words were, “oh wow! Oh my god, that is amazing!”

The winning numbers were:
15, 21, 22, 27, 47 and the Power Number was 7.

The customer’s numbers were:
15, 21, 27, 47, 49 and her Power Number was 7.

The lucky winner was a regular player, who enjoyed playing for the chance to win from the draws of some of the biggest US and European lotteries in the world.

Before the lottery win she planned to buy a small boat for her husband, but now the small boat will be upgraded to something bigger!
