Are YOU Australia’s newest multi-millionaire? Two lucky winners who snapped up a share of Powerball’s $150m jackpot DON’T KNOW they’ve won

  • The jackpot was won by three people who scored $50 million each
  • Two division one winners from Queensland and one from New South Wales 
  • One of the men who won has come forward, saying he plans to build a house

Tonight’s record-breaking $150 million Powerball jackpot has been won by three people.

The Lott confirmed there were two division one winners from Queensland and one from New South Wales.

They’ve won $50 million each, but the identities of one of the Queensland multi-millionaires remain a mystery as both entries were not registered to a player card.

A Brisbane man come forward on Friday morning as one of the winners, saying he planned to build a house after scoring himself $50million.

The identity of the New South Wales division one winner remains a mystery, as lottery officials haven’t been able to get in touch with the online player.

The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said she’s waiting for the country’s newest multi-millionaires to check their tickets and make contact.

‘We are thrilled to see three division one winning entries share this record-breaking jackpot tonight,’ she said.

‘We were hoping to reach out to these winners tonight to break the incredible news.

‘So far we have been unable to get in touch with the New South Wales online winner.’

The winning numbers were 26, 4, 17, 5, 18, 8, 31 and the Powerball was 9.

The prize jackpotted from $100million after no winners claimed the first division prize in last week’s draw. 

Lottery officials said around half of all adult Australians entered the Powerball draw, which eclipses the previous record prize of $107.6 million which went off in January.
