Winning $50 million Powerball ticket from Central Northern NSW!

Friday 27 December, 2013 - One winning entry from New South Wales has scooped the entire $50 million jackpot in last night’s Powerball draw. 

The winning ticket, which was purchased in the Orana region in the central northern area of the state, is the largest single lotto win in New South Wales’ history. 

NSW Lotteries is waiting for the mystery holder of an unregistered division one winning entry from last night’s Powerball draw to come forward and claim their life-changing Powerball windfall. 

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said it’s possible the winner is relaxing on holiday or perhaps recovering from their Christmas festivities completely unaware of their new multi-millionaire status.

“Unfortunately the winning ticket was not registered to a NSW Lotteries Players Club card, so we have no way of contacting the winner to tell them they will be starting the New Year as a multi-millionaire,” Ms McDougall said. 

“Imagine what you could tick off your New Year’s resolution list or even add to it after winning $50 million! 

“If you purchased an unregistered entry in last night’s Powerball draw 919 in the Central Northern region of the state, we urge you to have your ticket checked as soon as possible at any NSW Lotteries outlet or online at www.nswlotteries.com.au. 

“That ticket with the winning Powerball numbers on it is worth a massive $50 million so we recommend anyone who believes they are holding the winning ticket, to keep it in a safe place and contact NSW Lotteries immediately to start the prize claim process. 

“We always encourage players to register their entries to a NSW Lotteries Players Club card because it not only ensures their prize is secure, but it also means we can contact them directly with news of a big win.” 

The winning numbers in last night’s Powerball draw 919 were 16, 39, 7, 35, 3 and 25. The Powerball was number 13.
