One lucky WA player scoops $3.2 million in Powerball prizes

Western Australia’s run of good luck has continued with one Play Online player collecting $3.2 million in winnings in last night’s Powerball jackpot.

The winner took out half the $6 million Division 1 prize as well as 19 of the 20 Division 2 prizes in the Powerball draw.

The Powerpik 6 ticket has enabled the one player to strike it lucky 20 times on the one ticket and pick up a total prize of $3,224,546.

An additional Division 2 prize worth $11,818 was also won by another Play Online player in WA which has seen the State scoop the entire Division 2 prize pool.

Lotterywest spokesperson Paula Schibeci said this was a fantastic result for Play Online players in WA.

“It looks like Play Online is where the luck is this week with our Division 1 and 2 winners purchasing directly from the Lotterywest website,” Ms Schibeci said.

“We’re thrilled that last night’s result has seen another Western Australian become an instant multi-millionaire. Let’s hope this lucky streak continues in WA!”

WA shared last night’s $6 million Powerball jackpot with one other winner from Victoria.

Lotterywest is waiting to hear from WA's newest millionaire.

$22 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw tomorrow!
Last night’s big win could be a sign of more good things to come in WA with one sleep until the $22 million Saturday Superdraw.

“We’re getting ready for a very busy day on Saturday and we estimate about 635 Superdraw tickets to be churning out of lottery terminals each minute during the busiest hour on Saturday,” Ms Schibeci said.

Tickets for the draw can be purchased prior to 6pm Saturday in-store, online at www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au/play-online or through the Lotterywest App. Syndicate shares are also available in-store.
Support from local players purchasing tickets in this weekend’s Superdraw is also set to help Lotterywest raise an estimated $4.3 million for the WA community.
