Queenslander who won $35 million in Powerball draw found

UPDATE: A Sunshine Coast  woman has come forward as the winner of half of the $70 million Powerball jackpot.

The lucky lady said she was completely unaware of her $35,904,620.67 win until this afternoon.

“I’m feeling a little sick at the moment! I’m just waiting to wake up from this dream,” she told Golden Casket.


“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.
