Two winners share Powerball’s massive $100 million jackpot

UPDATE @11.00AM | IT’S been revealed one of the mystery $100 million Powerball winners purchased their ticket in the Canterbury-Bankstown region.

The lucky winner will share the record-breaking jackpot with another person from Victoria but it appears both winners are completely oblivious to their $50 million good fortune.

The southern Sydney entry was not registered to a Players Club card and nobody has come forward to collect it at this stage, so the winner could be walking around with a ticket worth $50 million in their pocket, wallet or handbag.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said he encouraged everyone who purchased an entry from a licensed lottery outlet in the Canterbury-Bankstown region to check their tickets as they could be one of Australia’s newest multi-millionaires.

“While we haven’t been able to confirm the win with either of our winners, we can guarantee that when they discover the news, their life is set to change when each of their bank accounts balloons by a whopping $50 million,” he said.

“Make sure you check your entry as soon as possible because you may not have to go to work on Monday. Instead, you could start planning how you can play by your own rules and begin your life as a multi-millionaire.”

“Players can check their entry at any outlet, online at thelott.com or on the Lott app,” he explained.

“If you check your ticket and discover you are holding the winning ticket, we recommend you keep it safe and contact 131 868 to start the process of claiming your prize!”

A Victorian online entry took home the second share but Lotto officials haven’t been able to get in contact with them either.

EARLIER: Two entries have shared Powerball’s record $100 million jackpot forcing the rest of us to turn up to work and keep dreaming.

The lucky winners, one from New South Wales and the other from Victoria will take home a life-changing $50 million.

The winning New South Wales ticket was bought somewhere in Sydney but was unregistered so officials haven’t been able to contact them yet.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart is urging anyone who bought a ticket in Sydney to check their tickets.

“Players can check their entry at any outlet, online at thelott.com or on the Lott app,” he said.

“If you check your ticket and discover you are holding the winning ticket, we recommend you keep it safe and contact 131 868 to start the process of claiming your prize!”

The winning Victorian ticket was bought online but their contact details were incomplete so officials haven’t been able to contact them either.

One in three Australians are estimated to have bought a ticket in the massive draw.

“While two entries won the coveted division one prize, more than 3.79 million other divisional prizes worth $66.6 million were won tonight,” Mr Hart said.

“So for anyone holding a ticket in tonight’s draw, it could pay for you to check your ticket – either online, via the Lott app or in any licenced lottery outlet.”

The winning numbers were 33, 3, 32, 13, 27, 35 and 31 with the Powerball of 3.

Next week’s Powerball will only be a paltry $3 million.

Still, who wouldn’t want that?
