A retired man from the Gold Coast has won the whole division one prize pool in Thursday night’s $60 million Powerball draw.
The incredible win is the second largest individual lottery win in Australia, with the largest still being the 2016 $70 million Powerball that was won by grandparents in Hervey Bay. Amazingly, the two largest winners were both from Queensland.
The Gold Coast man, from Burleigh Heads who purchased the winning ticket from Nextra Burleigh Town News, wishes to remain anonymous. However, he has said that he intends to share his good fortune with his family and also take a holiday.
“I’m retired, but I’m young enough that I will still have plenty of time to enjoy it… I’m over the moon. It’s just life-changing. I’m shaking,” the man said after the incredible win.
The final Powerball results for draw number 1173 were 29, 35, 12, 30, 17, 23, 15 and the Powerball was 10.
