After a truly uncertain year, anyone would surely be over the moon to learn they are now multi-millionaires. For a South Melbourne couple, news of winning the incredible $60 Million Powerball was the ultimate thing to turn their year around. Their ticket was the only ticket to check all the results for Powerball draw 1327 on 21 October 2021 and crown them a $60 Million Powerball winner!
The Powerball entry belonged to a couple from South Melbourne. Speaking with lottery officials the following day, the ticket holder shared his winner’s story. The man revealed he had been watching TV with his wife when he discovered the news. He claimed they knew straight after the draw that their lives had changed and that they had been trying to calm down ever since!
Admittedly, he said they were feeling in total disbelief, as if it was a dream.
“I am feeling amazing, we both are. It has been a very tough year for us – really horrible. But this changes everything!
With Melbourne’s particularly difficult circumstances this year, becoming a multi-millionaire is sure to reignite some excitement and hope for the future. When officials asked how the couple might spend their winnings they were thrilled to share their small celebration plans.
“Today we will celebrate by getting some chocolate, flowers and coffee, and we’ll go out for a beautiful dinner tonight.”
In the longer run, they are looking forward to paying off their home loan and other debts. He also shared plans to look at retiring, taking some holidays, helping their children, and a new car.
“This is going to make things so much easier. It’s life-changing!”
Congratulations to the $60 Million Powerball winner!
