Someone could become an instant millionaire as Powerball’s division one prize hits $30 million.
So far this year there have been two Powerball division one wins landing in Queensland and two in New South Wales.
The Lott’s Ally Ramsamy said last year there were 14 Powerball division one winners across Australia who scored more than $470 million in prize money.
“Imagine how your plans for the rest of 2021 and the rest of your life could change if you took home a life-changing $30 million. A multimillion-dollar prize like this is bound to put a spring in the step of any division one winner,” she said.
“There really is no limit to how you could play by your own rules with $30 million in your bank account.”
The last time someone scored a $30 million Powerball prize was in May 2019 when a Victorian player scored the entire prize.
A Bendigo blue-collar worker had a dream end to the working week, arriving home to the news he won $30 million in Powerball.
“I’ve just knocked off work and come home. My wife had just checked the ticket online and came screaming out the door. I said, ‘Don’t get your hopes up,’ but I guess it’s true,” he said at the time.
“I’ve never been a rich man and have worked hard all my life, so this is going to make a huge difference to us. It’s a lot of money. I don’t know what to say.
“I watch Millionaire Hot Seat every night and have always dreamt of being a millionaire. Other than my wedding day, this is the best day of my life.
“I might retire and go round Australia. We’ll have to buy a new car too. I’ve never owned a new car. We rent so I’d love to own my own house. I was going to buy a house with my super when I retired, but now I can finally buy my first home.”
