Immediate retirement calling Clyde blue-collar worker who scored $53.3 million Powerball win
A Clyde blue-collar worker struggled to hold back tears as we broke the news that he held a division one winning entry in tonight’s Powerball draw.
The unassuming winner was having a quiet night at home when he received the life-changing call confirming his multi-million-dollar share of the Powerball jackpot.
“Oh my god, oh my god. I can’t believe this!” he cried while fighting back the tears.
“Holy sh*t! Holy sh*t!
“Far out! I’m absolutely speechless.
“I never thought I’d get this phone call. This has changed my life!
“I can’t wait to tell my family!
“My family is set! My grandson wanted a dog for Christmas and I was trying to organise it for him. He can have all the dogs in the world now!
“I’m done with work! I’m out of here, mate.
"Retirement is calling.
“This is absolutely mind-blowing.
“Thank you so much, mate!

Search underway for mystery New South Wales multi-millionaire
The hunt has begun for the mystery New South Wales ticketholder who also scored division one in tonight’s Powerball draw.
This winning entry was not registered to a player card, which means we have no way of reaching out to the newly-minted multi-millionaire. Instead, we must wait for the ticketholder to check their ticket and discover the life-changing news themselves.
The winning ticket was purchased at a NSW Lotteries outlet in the City of Penrith.
We are thrilled to see three division one winning entries share this record-breaking jackpot tonight. Of course, we were hoping to reach out to all of our division one winners to break the incredible news, but unfortunately, we will have to wait for our New South Wales winner to come forward.
Just imagine how more than $53 million might change your life and the lives of your closest family and friends.
There are 53 million reasons why all New South Wales players who had an entry into tonight’s draw should check their tickets.
If you discover you’re holding one of the division one winning entries, hold on tight to that ticket and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so that we can start the prize claim process!
The Western Australian winning entry will be managed by our friends at Lotterywest.
