Division two Powerball winner found in Murray Bridge
Someone local has won more than $150,000 in a lottery draw.
Imagine being more than $150,000 richer and not realising until two days later.
A division two winning ticket in Thursday night’s Powerball draw was sold at the Drakes supermarket in Murray Bridge.
But it took until Saturday morning for the winner to come and claim their prize.
Store manager Randall Meyers said the winner had been unaware of the windfall until they brought their ticket in to be checked.
The ticket had all seven winning numbers – three, four, eight, 11, 14, 19 and 22 – but not the powerball, which was five.
The prize was worth $155,630.30.
There were seven division two winners in the lottery draw, according to the Lott.
The entire $60 million division one prize was won by a woman from the small town of Daylesford, Victoria.
