Winning numbers: SA single entry with unregistered ticket wins first division

The search continues this morning for last night’s mystery winner of the $150 million monster. power ball jackpot, which officials have stated is the largest lottery winner in Australian history.
A single ticket purchased at South Australia swept the division one prize pool, but the winner had yet to claim their prize hours after the long-awaited draw.

The winning numbers were 18, 29, 34, 8, 4, 28 and 6 with a Powerball of 11.

The Lott said a single person purchased the ticket but did not register it on a player card or online account, so officials were left with no choice but to wait for them to show up.

A lottery spokesperson said the winning ticket was purchased at an Adelaide store.

The $150 million prize is tied for third largest prize ever offered by the lottery game, but all of the most lucrative drawings were won by multiple winners or syndicates.

Lott spokesman Khat Intrachai asked anyone who lived in South Africa or bought a ticket there to check their numbers.

“Someone has become Australia’s biggest individual lottery winner and they may not know it yet,” he said.

“Can you imagine walking around unknowingly with a fine worth $150 million?”

These were the access points to the Australian lottery for 2023

Lott spokesman Matt Hart said there had only been five drawings offering a jackpot of $150 million or more.

“If just one person takes home this $150 million prize on Thursday night, they will make history by becoming the largest individual lottery winner in the country,” he said before the drawing.

“The last time Powerball offered a $150 million prize was in January of this year, when peak sales occurred at 6:15 pm on drawing day, when 7,455 tickets were sold in a single minute.”

While The Lott was quick to confirm that there was only one winning entry tonight, it was unclear if this was a single person or belonged to a syndicate.

Statisticians say there’s a better chance of being struck by lightning than winning the huge prize, but it’s a chance millions were willing to take.

Lott said winners had one year to claim the prize in South Africa before a process was initiated to claim the prize directly from the state government.
