WA takes home Powerball prize once again - latest worth $23 million!
For the fifth time this year, Western Australia has taken out a Division 1 Powerball prize.
WA has shared in tonight's $70 million Powerball jackpot with two others from across the nation. The other winning tickets were sold in New South Wales and Queensland and are each worth $23.3 million.
The $23.3 million prize is the fourth largest Lotto win in WA history and comes less than four months after a family from south of the river took home a $50 million Powerball prize - the largest ever won in the State.
Lotterywest CEO Paul Andrew said this was another exciting moment for WA.
"It's been a record breaking year for WA Lotto winners and we're absolutely thrilled with tonight's result and that we've managed to add another jackpot winner to our already long list," Mr Andrew said.
"This win does not only hold a $23.3 million prize, it's also our 90th Division 1 Lotto and 1st Prize winner for this year. This is great news for WA players, particularly those who purchased a ticket in tonight's jackpot!"
A further 185,589 other WA players took home a prize in tonight's jackpot, including one local player who scooped a Division 2 prize worth $160,403. The ticket was purchased at Nextra Riverton.
Tonight's $70 million Division 1 prize offer was the result of no one across the nation being able to match the game's six winning numbers plus the Powerball for the last six weeks.
It wasn't just local winners that benefitted from this jackpot roll - an estimated $13 million has been raised over the jackpot run to support the WA community.
Lotterywest encourages all players who purchased a ticket in tonight's Powerball draw to check them as soon as possible for the winning numbers 3, 15, 19, 26, 35 and 1 and the Powerball 18.
