Oz Lotto jackpots to $70 million tonight
Tonight Australians have the chance to win the second-highest lottery prize in our history, with $70 million up for grabs in Oz Lotto.
HAVE YOUR SAY: What would you do with the $70 million if you won?
Speaking with Neil Mitchell CEO of Tatts Lotteries Bill Thorburn said Tattersalls expect half the adult population will take a ticket in tonight's draw.
Bill Thorburn said there was a one in 3.8 million chance of winning when buying a twelve-game quick pick.
"This is a game where one person can win, but typically we might possibly get two or three winners," he said.
Bill Thorburn said the government take between 30 and 35 per cent of the revenue generated via ticket sales, while Tattersalls will walk away with four per cent.
The highest prize pool was $106 million in 2009.

If I won the lottery I would pay all my uni fee's, and I would buy myself a beautiful apartment in the city. Then I would buy a black mercedes convertible. I would then buy my mother a beautiful house and set her up for life. I would give a lot of money to cancer and multiple schlerosis research. I would also give money to disability organizations. I would take hold a wonderful event for all the students and teachers in my department at uni and we would have a wonderful gala together. That is what I would do if I won the lottery!Natalie Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 9:26 PM
I would spend 60% of money on charity. Rest of the money I would use for myself and my family.Pramod Bhattarai Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 9:01 PM
