The sole Powerball winner that took home $30,000,000 in the recent mega jackpot was a woman from the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Her life as she knows it has changed forever.
“I was in total shock, and still am,” she told Oz Lotteries.
Her winning Super Combo Powerhit System 7 was purchased on her mobile from OzLotteries.com. This brought her a total of $30,522,908.50 in prize money from multiple divisions. After checking her email inbox to find a message from Oz Lotteries notifying her of the Division 1 win, the woman “screamed” to her husband that they might have won the lotto.
“He thought it was spam mail… or a technical glitch… and everyone got a message saying they had won!”. However, it all became reality once she received a confirmation phone call from the Oz Lotteries customer support team. The amazing news was then shared with her husband and mother.
The sole Powerball winner said she often had good luck but wondered why she had been so lucky when others had not. “I always seem to win a door prize when I go to an event, but this was no door prize,” she said of her amazing windfall. “I feel blessed.”
Excitingly, the winnings will go toward settling “all things house related” before purchasing a new car for the family. She added that a trip to Europe was definitely on the cards. Why not – with $30,000,000 in the bank, you can afford to live a little!
