Powerball’s $50 million jackpot won by a single ticket
A single unregistered ticket bought in Queensland has won the entire $50 million Powerball jackpot tonight.
The mystery entry was the only division one winner.
Officials at the Lott are not yet revealing where in the state the ticket was purchased but urging all Queenslanders “to check their ticket and make contact to claim their prize”.
The winning numbers of Thursday night’s draw were 13, 25, 30, 3, 19, 16 and 22. The Powerball was 10.
There were 1,770,963 additional wins across divisions two to nine in tonight’s draw who collectively took home more than $32.19 million, the Lott said.
The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said officials were eagerly waiting to speak to Australia’s newest multi-millionaire.
“Someone has become an overnight multi-millionaire but possibly doesn’t know it yet. We can’t wait for them to discover this incredible news,” he said.
“Just imagine how $50 million might change your life and the lives of your nearest and dearest.”
Winners can contact officials on 131 868 to begin the prize claim process.
Last year, 14 Powerball division one winners across Australia pocketed more than $470.1 million in prize money.
In 2020, Powerball twice offered an $80 million jackpot – the biggest prize offered by any Australian lottery game during the year.
Of the 14 Powerball division one winning entries in 2020, six were in Queensland, five in New South Wales and three in Victoria.
