Two Australians have been crowned multi-millionaires after sharing in Thursday night's massive Powerball draw.

The staggering $80 million jackpot was split between two entrants – both purchased in either NSW or ACT.

The winning numbers needed to take out the division one prize were 10, 17, 19, 21, 26, 31, 35 and the Powerball number 1.

It's believed one in four Aussies purchased an entry for Thursday night's draw.

More than 40 entries also shared in the division two prize and each took home more than $31,000.

Last week, Powerball jackpotted for the fourth week in a row after another week of no division one wins. It boosted the prize pool to the highest since July 2020.

This week's $80 million draw is the third largest lottery haul in Australian history.
