USA Power Lotto Player Wins Over $1.65 Million
A Sydney player has claimed a division 2 prize in our USA Power Lotto, with a massive AUD$1,656,020 win!
This record breaking win is Australia’s largest ever pay-out from an international lottery jackpot.
The winner made the very wise decision to play USA Power Lotto and accidentally selected the Multiplier option for the low price of only $3.45, which doubled their prize from what would have been just over AUD$820,000 to AUD$1.65 million. The Multiplier is available in both our USA Power Lotto and USA Mega Lotto, and can multiply all non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.
We purchased a matching ticket with his lottery numbers in the July 10 (US time) US Powerball draw held in the USA, and it won USD$2 million before US taxes (all winnings at The Lottery Office are free from Australian taxes).
The winning numbers that were drawn in the US Powerball were:
The lucky gentleman only needed to also match the Power number to win the jackpot prize of AUD$169 million. So close!
The numbers that won him the AUD$1.65 million division 2 prize were:
The jackpot prize was not won, so for the July 29th draw (AEST), our USA Power Lotto jackpot will be worth an astounding AUD$252 million! Hopefully another player can go one better and take home the major prize.
A Very Timely Win
We were so excited to call the player and tell him the great news of his record-breaking USA Power Lotto win!
He was very emotional when he told us that like a lot of Australians, he has been hit hard by Covid-19, and the win couldn’t have come at a better time. After working for himself for 30 years, Covid-19 has been disastrous for his business and he was on the brink of ruin.
After not sleeping a wink since learning of his win, he was having a celebratory champagne with his family when we called him.
The winner tells us that he prefers to play lotto with an Australian owned and operated company, so it made sense to play with The Lottery Office.
Playing with our free Lottery Office App, he won his prize with a Quick Play, where we select your lottery numbers for you at random.
With his juicy AUD$1.65 million prize he plans to clear his debts and save his business.
