Meet our Powerball winner
Australia’s latest Powerball winner is an Oz Lotteries member! The now millionaire purchased their winning $25,000,000 Powerball ticket online.
The lucky Powerball winner is from West Footscray, in Melbourne. They surely had a sleepless night when the winner realised she had matched all six winning numbers plus the Powerball. Her official 18-game Standard ticket, purchased on the Oz Lotteries app, turned into a life-changing Division 1 prize.
The woman was reportedly “super excited” to receive the news. Especially so after telling a family member that she was finally going to win lotto in 2016! She said she had been a regular player since joining Oz Lotteries in 2012, but usually played 10-game tickets. When setting up her ticket in the Oz Lotteries app, she realised she had selected the default number of 18 games, and decided to play the extra 8.
We can reveal that it was the 17th game that matched all 7 numbers and hit the jackpot – how extraordinary!
What happens after a lottery win?
All major Division 1 and 2 prize winners are contacted personally by the Oz Lotteries customer support team to congratulate them on becoming a major lotto winner. Over the next 3 weeks, the winner’s prize will be visible and secure in her Oz Lotteries online account. Meanwhile, she will undergo an official identification process and the bank transfer is requested. We will advise her to speak to her bank manager and/or financial advisor to let them know her bank account will be receiving a very large deposit!
Lottery officials were also happy to break the news to our other big Powerball winners in minor divisions from last night’s $25,000,000 draw. A man from Barmera in South Australia won over $77,000 in Division 2 with an 18-game Quickpick. Notably, the same ticket type as our Division 1 Powerball winner! Meanwhile, a Super Combo System ticket brought over $54,000 to another of our members. They must be celebrating this morning!
The winning numbers from Powerball draw 1030 on February 11th were 1, 8, 21, 30, 22, 33 plus Powerball number 5.
