No joke! Snowtown mother scores entire $40 million Powerball jackpot
A Snowtown mother who joked about winning division one in Powerball earlier today has received a phone call revealing her phenomenal $40 million win in tonight’s draw.
The Mid North resident held the only division one winning entry in Powerball draw 1373, drawn Thursday 8 September 2022. She scored the entire division one prize of $40 million.
The winning woman is the first Powerball division one winner in South Australia for 2022.
Straight after the draw, we reached out to the gleeful woman who had to pull over while driving to hear the life-changing news.
“Oh my god! Oh my god!” she screamed.
“F*** off! F*** off! My brain isn’t working at the moment.
“Forty million dollars? Is this true?!
“What! I can’t believe it!
“I was driving and I’ve turned into some random street. I don’t know where I am.
“Funnily enough, I was joking around with a friend earlier this morning saying if I won division one in Powerball, I’d go on a holiday around the world.
“I definitely didn’t expect to win the entire jackpot tonight!
“Never in a million years did I think this would’ve happened to me.
“It’s been a tough few months, so this is life-changing.
“We will celebrate eventually. Once I’ve processed this all.
“Thank you so much.”
