Newsagency Golden Arrow is waiting in anticipation after selling a $110,000 winning lotto ticket in this week’s Powerball.
Golden Arrow News and Casket owner Amanda Shield said The Lott had informed her of the $110,500.85 prize-winning ticket, but she was not yet sure if it had been claimed and she’s encouraging locals to stop in to see if they were the lucky winners.
“We are really excited as this is a huge amount of money to come to Bundaberg,” she said.
“Although we are unaware of the winner or any of the specific details, we’d like to think it was a local and we are encouraging them to pop in and check their tickets.”
“Since I have taken over, we’ve sold quite a few second divisions.
“Actually, early this year we sold a second division at both Bargara and Bundaberg on the same night – which was very exciting!
“The previous owners had sold around eight or nine division one tickets.
“I think it would be pretty nice to do that next week when the Powerball has jackpotted to $100 million – that would be the icing on the cake!”
The Lott said no division one winners were drawn in the Powerball draw on 13 October, and next week Powerball would offer $100 million for the first time in 2022.
“Australians dreaming of playing by their own rules forever will be eagerly counting down to next Thursday’s $100 million Powerball draw,” a statement read.
“The Powerball jackpot has surged to $100 million after there were no division one winners in tonight’s (Thursday night) draw.
“While no one took home the coveted $50 million jackpot prize in tonight's Powerball draw, there were a total of 1,693,915 prizes worth more than $31.9 million won in divisions two to nine.
“Among those winners were eight division two winners who each took home a $110,500.85 prize.”
Next week’s Powerball draw 1379 on Thursday 20 October 2022, offers the second largest jackpot offered by any Australian lottery game so far this year.
It’s also the first time Powerball has offered a $100 million jackpot in 2022 and only the fourth time in Powerball’s 26-year history the jackpot has climbed this high.
If just one player scored the entire $100 million jackpot next Thursday night, they would immediately become Australia’s second biggest lottery winner.
