Imagine waking up this morning to the news you’re now Australia’s newest multi-millionaire… well that’s the reality for one lucky person in Western Sydney – but they don’t even know it!
The mystery Powerball player held the ONLY division one winning entry across Australia last night and scooped the entire $12 million jackpot.
The only problem is, the winning entry was not registered to a Players Club card so NSW Lotteries officials have no way of contacting them to break the incredible news.

To narrow down who may be in possession of the prized ticket, the Lott has revealed the entry was purchased at Greystanes Centre Newsagency at the Greystanes Shopping Mall.
NSW Lotteries spokesperson Lauren Cooney said the winner may have woken up this morning and be going about their day as normal without any idea they’re a multi-millionaire.
“If you purchased an entry into last night’s Powerball draw from Greystanes Centre Newsagency there’s 12 million reasons why you should be checking your ticket today,” she said.
“You may think there’s no way you could be the winner we’re searching for but someone is walking around with a $12 million ticket in their pocket.
“We can’t wait to confirm this life-changing news with the winner, if you realise you are holding this division one winning ticket, contact NSW Lotteries on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”
According to The Lott, it’s the first time an Australian has won a $12 million Powerball prize.
The winning numbers were 28, 11, 27, 16, 6, 3 and 35, while the all-important Powerball number was 10.
