In case you missed it: Powerball winner refuses to believe she’s won $40 million, while another refuses to answer their phone!
We know fans of Powerball like to play by their own rules, but our latest division one winners are really proving they have a healthy rebellious streak!
One winner is yet to accept she’s won, while we’re still eagerly trying to get the other winner to answer their phone.
Get the rundown on last night’s Powerball draw, plus more winning highlights from the week!
Two New South Wales entries share $80 million Powerball jackpot
While both of last night’s winning entries were registered to a player card, we could only make contact with one of the winners directly after the draw — a disbelieving Campbelltown retiree who purchased their entry from Leppington Newsagency.
“I don’t believe it!” she declared.
“No! No! Wow! I can’t believe it.
“I’ve been playing for a long time. But you never think this is going to happen to you.”
Despite our best attempts to reach our second division one winner, they may not have yet discovered their winning news!
If you purchased a registered entry from Dublin Street Newsagency, Smithfield, we encourage you to check your ticket! We promise it could be worth it!

“For 23 years, I’ve used the same numbers. I’ve still got the original ticket that I first marked all those years ago,” she explained.
“I’m so happy. I’m trying to be cool about it but it’s very hard!”
