It seems like all the luck was in Sydney last night, with two residents sharing in the $80 million Powerball draw.
The two New South Wales players held the only division one winning entries last night, earning them $40 million each.
Both entries were registered to a player card, but officials from The Lott could only make contact with one of the winners as the other is yet to pick up the phone!!!

The retiree from Campbelltown couldn’t believe the life-changing news.
“My grandson told me earlier this week, ‘Grandma’s going to win the lotto’ and that’s why I bought a ticket,” she said.
“I’m a bit gobsmacked. I’m in shock. I can’t believe it.
“I’ve been playing for a long time. But you never think this is going to happen to you.”
The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said the two new Powerball multi-millionaires were the fifth and sixth Powerball division one winners of 2021, and is calling on the second winner to pick up the phone!
“Two Sydneysiders are having a winning end to the working week, but first one of them needs to accept they’ve won, and the other needs to answer their phone – we promise it’s worth it,” she said.
“There are 40 million reasons why all Powerball players who purchased an entry into this week’s Powerball draw from a NSW Lotteries outlet in the City of Fairfield should check their ticket immediately.
“If you discover you’re holding the Powerball division one winning entry, hold on tight to that ticket and phone 131 868 as soon as possible so that we can start the prize claim process!”
