After one lucky man wins the entire $ 50 million Powerball jackpot, the winning numbers for this week’s $ 8 million prize have been revealed.
The winning numbers for this week’s $ 8 million Powerball jackpot were revealed after a man from Mackay won the full $ 50 million last week.
The numbers are 25, 17, 33, 23, 20, 19, 11 and three.
Official Lottery spokesperson Matt Hart said $ 8 million would be enough to change someone’s life, with recent research from The Lott revealing that a prize of a few million would be “more than enough” for the majority of people to make their dreams come true.
“It is interesting that for almost three-quarters of Australians, an $ 8 million Powerball prize would be more than enough to make their dreams come true,” Hart said.

About an hour into the New Years Eve, a Wagga Wagga woman in her twenties discovered that she entered 2021 as a newly created multimillionaire after winning a $ 9.8 million Powerball prize.
” I can not believe it. Thank you. It’s been a whole night! I didn’t get much sleep, ”she explained.
“I was with friends after midnight and was just trying to find something in my bag. I saw my ticket and thought maybe the results were known, ”she explained. “I checked the ticket on the app, but initially didn’t understand how much I had won. I had to ask my friend to check.
“It’s just amazing! All I know is my life is going to really change! It’s a great way to start 2021!
Mr Hart said Powerball was set to crown their fourth Division 1 winner for 2021. “So far this year, three Australians have become millionaires overnight thanks to Powerball,” he said.
“A big win in the Powerball division would be one way to end the summer on a high note and surely give you a warm glow for months and years to come.”
He added that when purchasing an entry, it’s a good idea to save your tickets to a player card or online account so that the winner can be contacted.
“Last week’s $ 50 million winning ticket was unregistered, meaning it took a while for the winner to realize he was suddenly a multimillionaire,” Hart said. .
“If they had registered their ticket, we could have alerted them to their life-changing victory right after the numbers were drawn.”
