The winners from Queensland and South Australia will each add $53,274,992.38 to their bank accounts from the record-breaking $106 million Oz Lotto first division prize.

And another 60 people will each get more than $33,000 from the second division pool.

The huge payouts are eclipsed only by the record $58.7 million win by a single Powerball entry in June 2008, by a syndicate of workmates who bought the winning ticket in the Melbourne suburb of Reservoir.

The Tuesday night jackpot draw originally set for $90 million was pushed up by a surge of late entries, taking the first division prize to $106.548 million and the total prize pool to $177.422 million.

Provisional results show that national sales for the draw reached a record $209,067,609, a statement released by NSW Lotteries said.

Ticket-holders only had a 45 million to one chance of winning, but that did not stop Australians buying 10 million entries for the record draw.

Tattersalls spokeswoman Karen Anning said the two winners would be notified before the agents they purchased tickets from were revealed.

Victoria posted close to three million entries, while Queensland recorded over 2.2 million entries in the draw, Ms Anning said.

Lotto officials estimated that one in three Australians would enter the draw.

The winning numbers were 12, 3, 38, 21, 23, 29 and 40, with 43 and 22 as the supplementary numbers.
