Hardworking Aussies claim $20 million Lotto prize and reveal their incredible ... trends now
A couple from Sunbury has breathed a collective sigh of relief that their eyes aren't deceiving them and that they really are $20 million richer from last night's Powerball draw.
The Melburnians held the only division one winning entry nationally in Powerball draw 1436, drawn Thursday 23 November 2023 and pocketed a total prize of $20,000,012.10.
The division one winning entry was unregistered, which meant officials from The Lott had no way of contacting the winners and had to wait for them to check their ticket and come forward.
The newly made multi-millionaires relayed the exact moment they discovered their life had changed forever when an official from The Lott confirmed their newfound fortune this morning.
'Wow, oh wow!' the winning wife exclaimed.
'That's pretty incredible!
'We were so concerned that it wasn't real. I think we checked the win about 10 times.
'We had to do something important this morning, so we hadn't had a chance to check our Powerball ticket.
Nextra Sunbury manager Melissa Hubbard (pictured with the team) said she’s thrilled to hear the mystery winners had come forward to claim their multi-million-dollar prize.
'When we came home, we decided to check the ticket and when the $20 million win appeared we honestly thought it was a scam.
'We manually keyed our ticket number into The Lott website and the same prize amount appeared. I checked the ticket once again, and then checked the winning numbers one more time.
'But now that you've confirmed the win once again, wow! We can't get our heads around this.
'We buy tickets into the Powerball draws irregularly… on and off.
'It's funny because on another line of the ticket we had won a division nine prize
