Queenslanders share $80mln Oz Lotto prize

An Ipswich mum and a Sunshine Coast motorsports fan will share the $80 million jackpot from Tuesday night's Oz Lotto draw.

Two Queenslanders have become Australia's latest multi-millionaires, sharing the $80 million Oz Lotto win in Tuesday night's draw.

A mother from Ipswich and a man from the Sunshine Coast will take home $40 million each, according to lottery operator The Lott.

"It's just so weird to think I am a multi-millionaire," said the mother who plans to take her family on a holiday to Canada.

The man, who also won an additional $28,726 from a System-8 QuickPick, will use the windfall to upgrade his house, buy a new car and travel to the Italian Grand Prix in September.
