  • Lucky punter won $10.6million Powerball
  • Winner said he could now afford to get married 

A lucky punter said he can now afford to get married after winning the $10.6million Powerball.

The Adelaide ticketholder was the only winner of the Powerball division one prize on Thursday night.

The winning numbers of Draw 1401 were 4, 5, 7, 18, 19, 25 and 26 while the Powerball was 15. 

The Sommerton Park man said he could not believe his luck and revealed how he would spend his money.

‘I can now finally afford to get married!’ he said. ‘It’s a strange feeling. I feel bizarre!

‘I looked at my phone last night, and I thought ‘Hang on! That looks different! I rushed to my computer and looked at the ticket on there instead.’

He said he occasionally played the Powerball and that he always used his favourite numbers when he visited his local newsagency.

‘I’ve been visiting Kylie Brown’s Newsagency for more than six years now,’ he said.

‘I’m happy knowing I picked up a division one winning entry from them. I’ll probably refurbish a lot of things – no flash holidays or anything like that.

‘I’ve got to let it all sink in!’

The winning ticket was purchased at Kylie Brown’s Newsagency in Bayside Shopping Village at Glenelg.

Ms Brown said she was ecstatic that the ticket had been purchased from her newsagency. 

‘It honestly feels so good!’ she said.

‘We were so close when we sold a division two in Powerball before and have been waiting to sell the big one ever since.’ 

‘Congratulations to the mystery winner and we wish them all the best with their multi-million-dollar prize!’ 

The ticketholder is the second South Australian resident to win the division one prize in a month after a woman took home $4.6million on March 9.   

The total prize money in the latest Powerball was valued at $10,626,529.30.
