Two million reasons to check your Powerball ticket
How would winning $2 million in Powerball change you? That’s a question one NSW Lotteries customer will be able to answer after winning a $2 million division one share in last night’s Powerball draw!
But just who can now call themselves a multi-millionaire is a mystery as the winning ticket was not registered to a Players Club card so NSW Lotteries has no way of contacting the winner!
NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall is urging all customers who purchased an unregistered entry in last night’s Powerball draw in the Mid North Coastal town of Tuncurry to check it immediately as they could be the mystery winner.
“We’re eager to put a name to this $2 million Powerball prize and break the life-changing news to this new multi-millionaire so they can start making all their Powerball dreams a reality,” Ms McDougall said.
“Just imagine how your plans for the weekend could suddenly change if you discovered you’d won $2 million.
“Any Powerball players who purchased an entry in last night’s draw from Tuncurry Newsagency should check their entry immediately as they could be changing their plans for not only the weekend but for the rest of their lives!
“If you believe you are holding the $2 million winning Powerball ticket, you should put it in a safe place and contact NSW Lotteries as soon as possible on 131 868.”
NSW Lotteries encourages players to register their entries to a Players Club card because it not only ensures their prize is secure, but it also means they’ll be contacted with the news of a big win!
The division one winning Powerball entry was purchased at Tuncurry Newsagency, 68 Manning Street in Tuncurry.
Around Australia, there were three entries that won a first division prize in last night’s huge $6 million Powerball jackpot draw worth $2 million each.
Along with the winning entry from Tuncurry, the other division one winning tickets were purchased in Queensland and Western Australia.
The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1060 on Thursday 8 September were 31, 25, 9, 28, 17 and 10. The Powerball number was 2. Powerball will offer a $3 million division one prize pool for next Thursday’s draw.
The Lott’s division one winning tally is now sitting at 76 so far this financial year, including 26 from NSW Lotteries.
