A man who won $10million on Thursday night’s Powerball has revealed he plans to spend his winnings on a pristine set of new teeth.
The 50-year-old from Castle Hill in Sydney’s north was the only division one winner in the draw, pocketing $10.3million on his 12-game auto pick entry.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, said a new set of pearly whites is first on his bucket list.
‘I haven’t smiled in 20 years because my teeth are so bad. The first thing I want to get are some implants,’ he said on Friday.
‘I’ve spent the night looking at them online. I didn’t get to sleep until 5.30 this morning because I was just looking at teeth.
‘I’ll look like a giraffe when they’re done!’

The man said he checked his ticket during the half time of the Sydney Swans and GSW Giants game on Thursday night.
‘I saw I had a few missed calls, but I thought it was my friend trying to rub it in about the match so didn’t answer,’ he said.
‘I looked at my ticket and thought I had won $14.60. But then I realised that was the cost of the ticket.
‘I saw how much I had won and I almost fainted. Even now I’m perspiring, even though it’s only 14 degrees.’
The new multi-millionaire revealed he had plenty of other plans for his windfall.
‘I was working in the aged care sector until recently but lost my job because of COVID. Now I can relax. It’s a good time of life to win,’ he said.

‘I want to buy my first house as I’m just renting at the moment. An animal charity I support will do well out of this, as will some close friends.’
The man said he also looks forward to travelling to Europe to follow up on his family history.
‘And I’ve always wanted to go the US Masters Golf Tournament – it’s a tournament that just has a mystique about it,’ he said.
The numbers drawn in Powerball draw 1265 on Thursday were 5, 24, 15, 16, 14, 32 and 6 and the Powerball number was 19.
