Ten people have woken up this morning to some very exciting news, after a syndicate took out Oz Lotto's $35 million division one prize.

Ten people from the town of Humpty Doo in the Northern Territory had the winning entry in last night's Oz Lotto draw 1417, with each member taking home $3,509,377.73.

The winning numbers in Tuesday night's draw were 7, 45, 34, 23, 33, 30 and 36, while the supplementary numbers were 16 and 40.

Some of the members of the syndicate were registered with The Lott, meaning an official was able to break the good news to some this morning.

"Holy s**t," one winner said.

"It couldn’t have come at a better time. Maybe I can buy myself a new house.” 

Another syndicate winner said they almost didn’t buy a ticket this time around, but now they are plannning on upgrading their car and travelling the world.

“I can’t believe I am a multi-millionaire!” She said.

“I don’t think I will ever stop crying. I need to compose myself!”

Another person had just woken up when they got the good news.

“I need a cup of tea to calm down,” he said.

Some of the people in the syndicate were not registered, meaning there is no way for The Lott to contact them.

Anyone who purchased a syndicate entry from the Humpty Doo Newsagency is being urged to check their ticket.
