Stop looking, South Australia! Australia’s biggest lottery winner has been found with an Adelaide man contacting us this morning with his winning Powerball ticket worth $150 million. 

The middle-aged Adelaidean held the only division one winning entry nationally in Powerball draw 1462, drawn Thursday 23 May 2024, and looks forward to a total of $150 million. 

“Woohoo! I’m still pinching myself!” he cheered. 

“I can’t believe it. I’m the mystery winner! I’m Australia’s biggest lottery winner ever?! 

“I actually had two tickets into last night’s draw. I looked at the clock last night and saw it was getting late and thought the draw should have been done by then. 

“So, I checked the first one and it came up with nothing, then I scanned the second one and it said $150 million! 

“I’ve never screamed so loud or jumped so high! 

“This was late last night and I still haven’t slept. I’ve just kept checking the ticket! 

“I normally play Powerball, so yesterday was a particularly lucky day! I just bought my ticket as I was filling up the car the other day and randomly bought my ticket there. I can’t believe I walked away with the winning ticket! 

“I know it may sound crazy but I’m going to continue working. I’m at work today. 

“I’ll buy a house, want to travel the world and I’ve got a family and friends I want to help, but for now I can’t wrap my head around how big this prize is.  

“This is life changing. I can’t stop smiling and pinching myself. 

“I can’t believe my luck!” 

In addition to the $150 million division one winner, there were 4,433,211 winners across divisions two to nine in last night’s Powerball draw who collectively took home more than $89.3 million. This included nine division two winners who each took home $276,036.95. 

His winning entry was purchased at OTR Salisbury Drive Thru, 142 Salisbury Highway, Salisbury.
