US Powerball Lottery Winner Takes Home Billions In Record-Breaking Win

In a record-breaking win, the US Powerball Lottery announced that one ticket holder had won the entire AUD$2.9 billion Division 1 jackpot, making them the winner of the largest lottery prize ever.

The winning US Powerball Lottery ticket was sold at Joe’s Service Centre in Altadena, California.

According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, the winner defied all odds by matching all 5  main numbers and the Powerball. This marks an incredible victory for the ticket holder, who is set to become the biggest lottery winner in history, beating the previous record by hundreds of millions.

The winner of this incredible jackpot is set to become one of the wealthiest people on earth and will receive an annuity payment over 30 years or can opt for a lump-sum payment. Either way, they’re now a billionaire!

It has yet to be discovered who the winner of this historic win might be. However, whoever it is, their incredible luck has undoubtedly won them one for the history books!

Eventually their identity will become publicly known, as the details of lottery winners from California are published, including their full name, the value of the winnings and the name and location of the retailer that sold the winning ticket.

Players with The Lottery Office will never have this problem as we guarantee anonymity for all of our lottery winners, so they have no need to worry that they’ll be hounded by people looking for a handout.

The US Powerball Lottery is one of the most popular lotteries in the world and has seen many big wins over its lifetime. This historic victory has encouraged many more to join in on the fun, with many hopeful that they, too, will walk away with a massive jackpot.

However, some Australian and New Zealand residents are still under the impression that they cannot play to win from the draws of the US Powerball Lottery.

The good news is that The Lottery Office offers a secure and safe way for Australian and New Zealand residents to play to win from the draws of lotteries such as US Powerball and Megamillions, giving them equal chances of winning as people living in the US.
