One mystery Australian has woken up a multi-millionaire after winning the $80 million Powerball jackpot last night, they just don’t know it yet!
A single entry bought in Victoria was the only division one winner across the whole country, but they’re yet to check their ticket.
It’s understood the multi-million-dollar winning entry is not registered to a Tatts Card, which means officials have no way of contacting them to break the incredible news.

The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said the winner might be completely unaware they held the only division one winning entry and now shares the title of Australia’s third biggest lottery winner!
“Someone in Victoria could be completely unaware that their life has changed forever, scoring the mouth-watering $80 million jackpot in tonight’s Powerball draw,” she said.
“We are encouraging all Victorian players to check their entries online, via the Lott website or app, or if you choose to visit a store, please practice social distancing. We can’t wait to unite this player with their prize!
“If you do realise you’re holding that multi-million-dollar ticket from tonight’s draw, please call us on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”
The winning numbers were 33, 2, 32, 31, 28, 21 and 26, while the all-important Powerball number was 12.
Last night’s $80 million Powerball draw appeared to be in hot demand, with The Lott’s app and website crashing as thousands of people rushed to buy last-minute tickets.
