It comes after a New South Wales woman walked away with the whole $50 million jackpot.
Understandably, she was absolutely shocked to find out she had won, especially considering it was the first time she had ever bought a lottery ticket.
"You won't believe this," she told lottery officials when they informed her she had won, "This is the first lottery ticket I've ever bought in my life.
"I've never played Oz Lotto before. I walked past the newsagency and thought it would be a bit of fun to enter, so I did.
"I can't believe it. I'm shaking. I'm shocked, so shocked."
Incredibly, she was the only Division One winner in Tuesday's draw. The unnamed woman had even completely forgotten about the ticket she bought on a whim until a mate reminded her to check it.
"My friend called me just before and said to me 'I think the newsagency you bought your Oz Lotto ticket from sold the $50 million winning entry'," she said. "My heart is beating so hard, I'm pacing around. I feel like I could have a heart attack."
When asked what she planned to do with that massive chunk of money, she said she had no clue.
"Honestly, I cannot think straight. I'll definitely keep working, but oh my goodness, I just don't know."
