Another Nice Couple Story
A couple originally from Manchester, England kept their promise to split any winnings from the Oz Lotto despite not seeing each other for almost a year. Alex & Sarah lived together in Prestwich, Manchester for 3 years after meeting in University & stayed in the city after graduating. “We always played the lottery, when we started to living together it was just another one of the things that we now did together” said Alex when we managed to reach him for a comment on the story. “I was playing the UK national Lottery, but when we decided to play together I looked online and found out that we could play the Oz Lotto for the same price – and the Oz Lotto has better odds and tax free winnings.”
When Sarah was offered a job and moved to New York to work for an advertising agency it was the end of their relationship, but not their Oz Lotto promise, “It was a tough break. We remained friends but were no longer together, Sarah even has a new boyfriend now but its fine, I kept my promise to split any Oz Lotto winnings and I am happy I did.”
Alex is a man of his word & we respect him for that.
Alex had set up a subscription plan for the Oz Lotto online meaning he would automatically enter the draw with his pre-chosen numbers, and those numbers came in. Alex won just over $94,000.00 when his numbers came in. “I thought it was funny that it was the Valentine’s day draw that we won!” said Alex laughing, “When I called her I bet she thought it was to wish her happy Valentine’s, not that we had won the Oz Lotto.”
Alex told her the news and informed Sarah that she would be receiving her half, as they had agreed. “she wasn’t expecting it, but she knows the type of guy I am and in my mind, there was never a question, it was our win, she deserved her Oz Lotto money as much as I did.”
So, welcome to the world of online lottery; two people, one in the UK and one in the USA shared between them a 6-figure sum from the Oz Lotto draw in Australia. The world of the lottery is getting smaller thanks to online and the lotteries such as the Oz Lotto are one of the main reasons for this surge in popularity. With some of the best odds and tax free winnings it’s easy to work out why this draw is so popular in Australia and worldwide.
