Two Victorians split record $112 million OzLotto jackpot
Four OzLotto ticket holders -including two from Victoria - have become instant multimillionaires.
They are the people holding the winning numbers for the biggest lottery ever held in Australia that carried total prizemoney of just under $112 million.
The two other winners are from Queensland and New South Wales, a spokeswoman for Tatts Lotteries said.
The identity of the winners is not yet known but Tatts Lotteries confirmed four people split the jackpot, each receiving $27,993,037.
For having the numbers 29, 43, 8, 7, 15, 2 and 13 with supps 21 and 20, they will each take home $27.9 million.
With the chances of winning at around 45-million-to-one, luck has struck four times.
The last time the jackpot went past $100 million was in 2009, when two winners took home a share of $106 million, after the $90 million draw was increased due to high sales.
It capped a a massive day for gambling, with Australians shovelling in around $250 million on the Melbourne Cup and then turning to OzLotto looking for a short cut to untold riches.
