When a baffling eight million tickets got sold in the Oz lotto Jackpot back in 2012, it not only made it to the headlines but also brought a heft prize money of $111 million which was shared amongst four winners.

Two years later, a prize pool of $60 million was won by three lucky winners from Brisbane, Western Australia and Northern Territory. They too, ended up donating a hefty amount in charity later.
