The winning numbers are 5, 6, 14, 36, 37, 45 and the supplementary are 28, 31.

The new millionaires aren’t the only people celebrating their new fortune.

One Aussie became $20 million richer after winning Thursday night’s entire division one Lotto prize.

The NSW woman originally thought she had only won $20,000 and broke down when she realised what she had actually won.

“I looked at it and then ran to my family and said, ‘I’ve won $20,000!’,” the Gladstone resident told officials from The Lott.

“They looked at it and then looked at me and said, ‘No you haven’t. You’ve won $20 million!’”.

She now plans to travel the world and use her winnings to buy a property.
