·1-min read

A South Australian woman has scooped the pool in the latest Powerball draw, winning the entire $40 million division one prize.

The Snowtown mother's winning ticket was purchased online.

She received the news from lottery officials while driving, pulling over in a side street to digest her good fortune.

"Funnily enough, I was joking around with a friend earlier this morning saying if I won division one in Powerball, I'd go on a holiday around the world," she said.

"I definitely didn't expect to win the entire jackpot tonight.

"Never in a million years did I think this would've happened to me. It's been a tough few months, so this is life-changing."

The woman, who did not want to be named, said some celebrations would be held, "once I've processed this all".
