Friday 24 January, 2014 - One Sunshine local will be celebrating the Australian dream of owning a home after claiming a first division Powerball prize of $7.5 million in last night’s draw!
The regular Powerball player said becoming a multi-millionaire overnight was unbelievable!
“I looked up the winning numbers on the internet after the draw and I didn’t believe what I was seeing. I checked the numbers over and over and over again,” the winner said.
“I’ve been playing for years and I didn’t think winning Powerball ever happened to normal people like me.”
The winner said they plan to secure their future with their multi-million dollar Powerball windfall.
“I’ll be able to own my home by paying off the mortgage and I’ll be financially secure for life,” the winner said.
“I’ve also got plans to share my windfall with some family members to improve their situations too.”
The Sunshine winner purchased their 50 game Powerball entry online at Tatts.com. There were two division one winners in Powerball draw 923 on 23 January 2014 who will each claim a division one share of $7.5 million.
The winning numbers in Powerball draw 923 were 28, 9, 24, 14, 7 and 31 and the Powerball was number 11.
There are more chances to win big with $4 million up for grabs in tomorrow night’s TattsLotto draw. Tickets can be purchased at any Tatts outlet or online at Tatts.com.
