Mystery winner takes home entire $30 million Powerball jackpot

A winner of $30 million in Thursday’s Powerball draw may be none the wiser after no one came forward to claim the jackpot.

Tatts officials are waiting to speak to either a Tasmanian resident or visitor who bought an unregistered winning entry for draw 1166.

A spokesperson for The Lott confirmed the winning ticket had been purchased in either Hobart or its surrounding suburbs.

The new multi-millionaire was the only division one winning entry in the September 20 draw, taking home the entire $30 million jackpot.

As Thursday’s winning entry was not registered to a Tatts card, the identity of the ticket holder remains a mystery and they may be yet to discover they’re now a life-changing sum richer.

Tatts spokesperson Bronnie Spencer is urging all Tasmanian residents or visitors who purchased an entry in last night’s Powerball draw to check their entry and make contact to claim their prize.

“Imagine how your plans for the weekend would change after discovering you are now $30 million richer!” she exclaimed.

“There are 30 million reasons why all Tasmanian Powerball players who had an entry in last night’s draw should check their ticket this morning.”

The winning numbers in Thursday’s draw were 20, 6, 30, 17, 8, 10 and 2. While the all-important Powerball number was 8.

Ms Spencer urged any potential winner to get in touch as soon as possible.

$30 million Oz Lotto still to be claimed

Ten days on from the draw, officials are still searching for the mystery winner who won the entire $30 million jackpot into Oz Lotto draw 1282.

The NSW entry was the only division one winning entry in Oz Lotto draw 1282 on Tuesday September 11 2018.

NSW Lotteries is urging anyone who purchased their unregistered Oz Lotto entry from Pacific Square News at Maroubra in Sydney, to check their ticket as soon as possible.
