One lucky woman was the only entrant to take out the Division One prize, winning a whopping $60 million in Powerball last night.

'Are you joking?' were her first words when she found out the news. Oh my god, this is insane.

The last time the game had a jackpot victor of more than $30 million was for the May 16, 2018 drawing when a Houston resident claimed the advertised $30.25 million prize.

Thanks to the fact that her PowerHit *also* won, she walked away from the experience with a cool and normal $60,683,656.95 in total.

"For years, I've stopped every Friday to buy instant tickets as a treat", said the player. There's no way he's going to believe me. With his winnings, he plans to buy a house, pay bills, and then invest the remainder.


'Hopefully, when we can travel again, we will be able to take our whole family somewhere overseas. This is very overwhelming. I'm shaking like a leaf!

James was in his vehicle when he heard on the radio there was one winning ticket sold in the Timiskaming/Cochrane region for the $65 million Lotto Max draw and thought, "I just may be that victor".

"We've been playing for a long time".

Players can phone Lotto NZ on 0800 695 6886 if they wanted to find out the best way to claim a prize. "I always ask the retailer for Quick Pick numbers and that's what won me the jackpot", he smiled.

Despite winning a multimillion-dollar prize, the self-confessed "country girl" revealed she wasn't planning on retiring early and was already hard at work. "I'm a country girl through and through!" she laughed.
