The Sydneysiders were part of a 10-share store syndicate, called Super Lucky, meaning each member scored $5,077,673.41 each after splitting their $50 million Powerball prize evenly.
One of the men was watching the footy when he learned of the life-changing news. Unable to believe it, the Rosebery man cheered, "Holy s***! Holy s***!' through the phone when The Lott phoned him on Thursday evening.
"Are you serious? I’ve won $5 million? I’m in shock. You’ve changed my life," he said "I can’t wait to call my mum and tell her the news – she won’t believe me."
Another member of the winning group admitted he was "dumbfounded” by his Powerball bounty. "This is unbelievable," the Sydneysider exclaimed admitting his wife was crying.
The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1420 on Thursday 3 August 2023 were 13, 7, 18, 1, 23, 25 and 33. The all-important Powerball number was 7.
Mystery Victorian takes out second Division One win
The other new-found multimillionaire is a mystery player from Victoria who also held a winning Division One entry. However, the winner doesn't yet know they're $50 million richer as lottery officials do not have complete contact details to reach them.
The Lott spokesperson Anna Hobdell said someone’s life has no doubt changed forever — they simply don't know it.
"Imagine going to bed tonight not knowing you’ve just won $50 million? That’s the reality for one Victorian player after scoring a slice of the division one prize in tonight’s Powerball draw!" she exclaimed.
"While the Victorian entry was purchased online, unfortunately, we don’t have their complete contact details, so we are unable to make a mind-blowing phone call to them this evening."
The Lott is encouraging everyone in Victoria to check their tickets because they might just be Australia's newest multi-millionaire.
"While we are unable to confirm the win with tonight’s winner, we can guarantee that when they discover the news, it’s sure to be met with a hefty mix of shock and excitement!" the company said.
