Not only is the latest $20 million Powerball winner now a multi-millionaire, he is able to retire… in his 20s! While the winner wishes to remain anonymous, he shared his incredible winner’s story.
The university student from Macgregor in Brisbane held the only division one winning entry in the 17 December 2020 draw. As the only winner in Powerball draw 1283, he’ll be taking home the entire $20 million jackpot!
