One lucky Oz Lotteries customer won the ENTIRE Division 1 prize for Powerball draw 1151 on 7th June this year. The man from the ACT took home $50,000,000 from a Quickpick 7 ticket. Our CEO, Mike, called the winner the next morning. Completely stunned by the official confirmation, he said he was not able to sleep the night before knowing his entire life was about to change.
