Powerball Winner Feels Like a Weight Has Been Lifted

Div2 Winner Blog

September 19, 2019 has gone down in the history books as the biggest Australian lottery jackpot ever – $150 million Powerball! Oz Lotteries was lucky to have one of the three Division 1 Powerball winners, a family man from NSW, who’s winning game saw him walking away with $50 million. But to add to an incredible draw, we also had a Division 2 winner, who won $125,916.90.

The man from NSW discovered the results just hours after the draw. At first he thought he wasn’t reading the results right and “must have checked his phone about 50 times”.

“It felt just like a weight was lifted and I could relax with some breathing room.”

Our Division 2 Powerball winner has been with Oz Lotteries for over 4 years and always keeps a positive attitude. When we asked if he had ever had a win this large before, he was quick to let us know.

“No, not at all! I couldn’t even win at duck duck goose or handball at school.” 

He believed it is possible to win online and it definitely is!

When we asked the Powerball winner about his plans for the prize money, he knew exactly what he would use it on. The couple is expecting a child and is now excited to be able to have their child in a private hospital.

Congratulations and best of luck to our lucky Powerball winner!

There were 18 Division 2 winners in Powerball draw 1218. To win a Division 2, you need to match all 7 main numbers that are drawn. To win Division 1, you need all 7 main numbers and the all-important Powerball. While $125,916 is still an incredible amount, just 1 number stands between the two Divisions. To make sure you have the best chance of winning Division 1, we offer PowerHit. It’s the guaranteed way to make sure you have the Powerball.

What is PowerHit?

A PowerHit ticket increases your chance of winning Powerball by automatically playing every possible Powerball number. You choose or QuickPick your 7 main numbers from 1 to 35 and the Powerball will be guaranteed! We guarantee the Powerball by playing the same 7 main numbers for 20 games – each with a different Powerball number from 1 to 20. That means, we play every possible combination of games with your main numbers and the Powerball.

For example: 

1: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (1)

2: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (2)

3: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (3)


20: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (20)

PowerHit means you get 20 games from the one set of main numbers. That also means that if your numbers have a lower division win, you can win multiple times! For example, if you had 5 main numbers, you would win 20 x Division 7!

As always, if you have any questions about Powerball or PowerHit, you can contact our friendly Customer Support team.
