Powerball draw 1420: Two entries share massive $100 million jackpot

One of the winners has been confirmed to be either from NSW or the ACT.

This is it Australia, it's time to check your tickets. The numbers for Thursday's gargantuan $100 million Powerball draw are in.

Are you about to join the elite club of division one Powerball winners?

The numbers for Draw No. 1420 are 1, 7, 13, 18, 23, 25 and 33 and the all-important Powerball is 7.

Officials have revealed there are two winners of division one - both taking home a cool $50 million each. One of the winning tickets is either from NSW or the ACT.

It was a case of close but no cigar for 49 entries who had all seven numbers but no Powerball. They at least take home $40,880.90 each to soften the blow.

One in two Aussie adults believed to have had a ticket

Powerball officials had said they were hoping to make history with Thursday's draw by creating back-to-back $100 million winners. It would have been the first time in the game's 27-year history two people had scooped the amount in a single year.

Just six weeks earlier a Bankstown dad pocketed the entire $100 million division one prize.

According to The Lott's estimations, half of all Australian adults entered Thursday's draw, meaning the draw will bring in at least $57.2 million from roughly 10.6 million people based on the cost of the minimum requirement of four games to participate.

If on average there were 20 games per person, the equivalent number of tickets in a PowerHit entry, Thursday's draw would turn over $285,569,840. The Lott has previously remained tight-lipped on the exact number of tickets it sells.

While the winners will be ecstatic once learning of their windfall, experts told Yahoo on Thursday winning big can actually trigger Sudden Wealth Syndrome which can bring about a large amount of stress.
