Two mystery Aussie winners share $80 million Powerball jackpot
Australia welcomed two new multi-millionaires tonight, with a division one winning entry from both New South Wales and Victoria sharing an $80 million Powerball prize.
There were only two division one winning entries in Powerball draw 1357, drawn Thursday 19 May 2022. Each division one winner takes home $40 million.
The New South Wales winning entry was purchased at Saigon Bookshop & Lottery, Shop 6, Cabramatta Mall, 47 Park Road, Cabramatta.
The Victorian winning entry was purchased at Sunshine Marketplace Lotto, Kiosk 1, Sunshine Marketplace, 80 Harvester Road, Sunshine.
However, as both of tonight’s division one winning entries were not registered to a player card, the identity of the two ticketholders remains a mystery, and they may have yet to discover they’re now both $40 million richer.
