“I honestly never thought I’d win in last night’s $70 million Powerball draw. I think the most I’ve ever won in lotto is about $20 so this is unbelievable.
“I can actually retire, I’ve wanted to retire for some time now.”

The hunt is on to find the Queenslander who bought a winning ticket in last night’s $70 million Powerball draw.
The lucky winner will take home half of the jackpot ($35,904,620.67), with a syndicate of 15 people from NSW picking up the other half of the division one prize.
The winning numbers were 32, 8, 5, 40, 19, 7 and the Powerball was 12.
Anyone who bought an unregistered ticket is urged to check their numbers to see if they are the lucky jackpot winner.
