Search for lucky Aussie who scooped entire $30M powerball jackpot

The search is officially on for the lucky person who is now $30 million richer after scooping the entire Powerball jackpot prize in last night’s draw.

Tatts officials said the winning entry was not registered to a Tatts card so the identity of the ticketholder remains a mystery.

They did however reveal that they had narrowed down the search to Hobart and its surrounding region, and urged all residents or visitors to check their entry as soon as possible.


“We can’t wait to confirm the incredible news with our mystery winner and unite them with their prize!” Tatts spokesperson Bronnie Spencer said.

“The mystery winner could be walking around with the winning entry in their back pocket and not even know it!

“That’s why we are encouraging all players to check their ticket either online, via the Lott app or in an official Tatts outlet to see if it could be them.”

It comes after someone in New South Wales, who is yet to discover their life-changing news, won the entire $30 million jackpot in Oz Lotto draw 1282 on Tuesday 11 September .

Ten days on, officials are still searching for the mystery winner, with NSW Lotteries urging anyone who purchased an Oz Lotto entry from Pacific Square News in Maroubra to check their ticket as soon as possible.
