26th January is Australia Day! PlayHugeLottos.com would like to wish all our Australian players a very happy day and the best of luck for all your lottery entries this weekend!
Let’s take a quick look at some Australian news making headlines here at PlayHugeLottos.com and around the world.
Australian Man Hits Gold
An amateur prospector from Victoria, Australia has netted himself an astonishing gold nugget weighing a hefty 5.5kg (177 ounces) and worth an estimated AUD$300,000.000 ($315,000.00 USD or £197,000.00).
With just the use of a handheld metal detector the unnamed man unearthed the sizeable slab of gold that lay hidden 60 cm under the ground near the town of Ballarat. What makes the find all the more amazing is that the area has been prospected for over 150 years without anyone finding it.
It just goes to show that you never know when your lucky day will arrive. Keep searching and you are bound to hit gold!
Said Cordell Kent, proprietor of the Ballarat Mining Exchange Gold Shop:
"There's nothing like digging up money, its good fun."

Australian Open – Who Predicted The Winners Correctly?
We asked YOU who would win the Australian Open men’s and women’s singles tournaments and this is what you said. With the 2 women’s favourites eliminated many of you were unfortunately wrong in your prediction. Defending champion Azarenka will be facing Li from China in the finals of the women’s tournament.
In the men’s tournament both favourites are still in contention for the crown with defending champion Djokovic already through to the final. He will be facing either Federer or Murray in the final on Sunday.
Good luck to these tennis stars and good luck to all our players who are still in with a chance of winning 10 Oz Lotto tickets with a correct prediction.
Disapointment for Sharapova who crashes out of the Australian Open.
Oz Lotto and Oz Powerball
No discussion about Australia on PlayHugeLottos.com would be complete without at least a mention of the 2 biggest Australian lotteries – the Oz Lotto and the Australian Powerball!
The Oz Lotto holds the record for the biggest jackpot ever won in Australia - AUD$112 million! It’s currently sitting at USD$21 million so be sure you don’t miss out!
Have a POWER day!
Whether you’re celebrating Australia Day or digging for gold or perhaps just relaxing and watching the tennis – Have a great weekend and good luck!
