Just seen tonight's 1st division prize has no winners so it'll be close to $100m next week.

Spoke to a mate today about sharing a system 20 for around $84k.

Didn't do it but wrote down 10 numbers each.

Got 1 number and 1 supp.

Means we have $168k for next week. :p


If you have that much cash laying around and you're willing to look at risk, for high return - then you should be taking a stake in a few of the good startups around.

Odds are marginally better than winning Oz lotto - returns could be just as high.

C'mon, do it!

When someone does win a big lotto its often more than one ticket holder, yet other times no one wins. I had a friend get 5 and a supp one time, approx $12k, so close but no where near close enough. Sure would make a nice Christmas present.  :tilt:

The infamous "Punters Club" spring to mind......

"Tasmanian-born punter Zeljko Ranogajec carries the reputation of being the biggest punter in the world. He is said to account for 6 to 8 per cent of the turnover of Tabcorp, with his outlays reportedly as much as $1 billion a year. The former blackjack player started out as part of a Hobart-based punters syndicate called the Bank Roll, which operated out of a hotel and used complex computer algorithms to win at the Keno lottery game Ė the syndicateís big wins are reported to have included at $7.5 million jackpot during the 1990s. Ranogajec has never given an interview, but took his bookmaker to court in 2008 and revealed that his syndicate had won more than $44 million betting on US racing over a three-and-a-half year period.

The syndicate, which bets on races all over the world, uses computer systems to place huge numbers and varieties of bets just before a race begins, relying on a combination of winning bets and rebates from betting companies on losing bets (these companies are desperate for Rangojecís extraordinary turnover) to make a profit. Ranogajecís net worth is unknown, but reports suggest he is fighting a $900 million tax battle with the Australian Taxation Office from his current base in Europe."

Sounds similar to the sting carried out on one of the boys who came on the early Sunday runs a few years back, he's a bookie and right before the dogs jumped a syndicate slammed loads of cash on all the dogs NOT the clear favourite, bumping the favourite's odds right up so that when he won the bookie was left with a huge payout to provide - or something like that.

Is he the guy with a car museum in Tassie? One of the Syndicate from Adelaide ran off with his Asian girlfriend and his ex-wife has spent 15 million dollars trying to get her cut of his hidden money. I dont get why she just didnt invest the 15 million and live happily ever after.
Apparently something like 70 or 80% of their bets lose but the wins make them many millions a year.

About 8 months ago the 23 year old kid in front of me at a Tatts outlet got his ticket checked and had won $5million. He had just bought a house and his girlfriend was moving in. The Tatts agent said he had better get some advice from both a financial adviser and his solicitor.

I can't think how I would have dealt with that sort of money if I was 23 (young and reckless) compared to now (older and wiser).
