A newsagent believed to be behind one of the Powerball's gargantuan $63 million wins couldn't hide their excitement overnight, taking to social media to express their euphoria.
A syndicate of 250 people in Western Australia is understood to have won one of the two Division One prizes claimed on Thursday night, Perth Now reported. Each player's winnings would sit at roughly $250,000.
City News Kalgoorlie newsagent, located in the remote Goldfields–Esperance city, took to Facebook shortly after the draw posting their expletive-containing reaction.
"WE F****** DID IT!" they proclaimed in a now-deleted post.
At this stage it is unclear if the news agency is part of the syndicate. The city of Kalgoorlie has a population of less than 30,000.
Thursday's Division One prize was the second largest offering in Australian lottery history after rolling over for six weeks.
The winning numbers for Thursday's draw are 6, 15, 9, 27, 32, 28 and 33, with Powerball number 8.
Mystery NSW winner urged to come forward
The Lott officials are still hunting down the second Division One winner, with a NSW resident yet to come forward.
The winning ticket was purchased in Coffs Harbour however was not registered to a player card, meaning officials have no way of tracking down the winner.
"Someone could be in store for a life-changing Friday, but first they need to check their ticket and discover they’re now more than $60 million richer,” The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said.
“We’re urging all players who purchased a Powerball ticket from an outlet in the Coffs Harbour region to check their tickets!"
The exact amount of the Division One win is $63,309,056.98.
