1 min read
A woman from Nyngan, a small town in central New South Wales, was utterly stunned to find she was the only winner from last week’s $10,000,000 Powerball draw, and therefore Australia’s newest multi-millionaire!
“This doesn’t happen to me!” she told lottery officials, after a sleepless night following the draw.
“I watched the draw last night and then sat down to check my ticket,” she said. “I thought to myself, ‘no, this can’t be – I’ve got this number, this number, and this one too.’” After realising she had matched all six winning numbers plus the crucial Powerball number, the lucky Powerball winner wasn’t sure what to think, describing the moment as “surreal”. After a long night of waiting, she eventually fell asleep in her loungeroom and woke to a call from lottery officials, who confirmed that it was all real.
She simply couldn’t believe that she had matched all six winning numbers plus the Powerball, and it was all thanks to her 40-game PowerHit ticket. A PowerHit ticket not only guarantees that you’ll match the winning Powerball number in every game, it also gives you more chances to win Division 1. You only have to choose six main numbers and we’ll make sure you match the winning Powerball number by including every possible Powerball number. It’s a great way to increase your odds of winning!
The new Powerball millionaire said she plans to “sit down… and start planning” how to best make use of her once-in-a-lifetime windfall. “My family makes do, but our world has definitely changed now that I’ve won Powerball.” She told lottery officials that the first step was to clear all the bills and do some work on the house, but that she really wanted to share with her family.
“Oh, the things we can do now!” she exclaimed.
The winning numbers from Powerball draw 1058 on the 25th of August were 12, 39, 22, 32, 25 and 24 plus Powerball number 11.
