'Head spinning' $135,000 division two prize in Powerball!

It was a case of close enough was definitely good enough for a Mount Annan woman who scored a ‘head spinning’ $135,000 division two prize in last night’s Powerball draw!

The winner was overwhelmed when a NSW Lotteries official contacted her early this morning to deliver the incredible news that her 24-game QuickPick had won a division two prize of $135,527.80!

“Oh darls! Good god!” the flabbergasted winner exclaimed.

“What do I do with that now? My heart is in my mouth and my head is spinning!

“I’ll have to start a list of what I can do with my prize money but I do know that I’ll be sharing it with my family.”

The division two winning Powerball ticket was purchased at Mt Annan Newsagency, Shop 13 in Mt Annan Marketplace, 11 – 13 Main Street in Mount Annan.

Deidre Appleton is a co-owner of Mt Annan Newsagency and was delighted to know one of her customers will head into the weekend $135,000 richer!

“Isn’t it wonderful!” Ms Appleton exclaimed. “

While most people like to hear about division one wins, we like celebrate all our customer’s wins no matter what division it is.

“In saying that - now we’ve sold a division two in Powerball, we would like to go one better and sell the first division winning ticket in next week’s $25 million Powerball draw!”

The winner was one of three division two winners in last night’s Powerball draw and has chosen to remain anonymous.

While Powerball jackpotted to a giant $25 million for next Thursday’s draw, there were more than 327,000 prizes won across Australia in divisions two to seven, sharing in a total prize pool of $7.5 million.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw 3649 on Thursday 21 July 2016 were 12, 36, 9, 30, 22 and 14. The Powerball number was 3.
