Girls Pool Spare Change and Net $70 Million OzLotto Jackpot

A group of girls who pooled their pocket change to purchase a last minute QuickPick entry for Tuesday's $70 million OzLotto draw have made OzLotto history by winning the largest ever lotto prize to date on a single ticket.

The identity of the ten lucky winners has not been revealed, but the winning ticket was purchased at the Golden News and Casket Kiosk in Runaway Bay (Queensland). Kiosk owner, Pam Goldsmith, was also over the moon when she heard the news, "I kept saying to customers this week, 'Wouldn't it be nice if we sold the winning ticket,' never thinking we would."
