As for what he intends to do with his $50 million fortune, the man said he would first need to let the enormity of his win to sink in.
“I’m dumbfounded. I can’t get the smile off my face.”
The Canberra man’s win is the second largest win by an individual Australian entry so far this year.
The standing record for the largest Powerball win claimed by a single entry in Australia was set in 2016 when one ticket purchased in Hervey Bay won $70 million in Powerball draw 1025.
