$10 Million Lottery Prize Winner Finally Found
A father from Queensland was cleaning out his pockets this week and found a lottery ticket in his cashbook. The winning Powerball ticket is worth a whopping $10 million.
The young father purchased a lottery ticket at the end of last month and never took the time to see if his ticket was the winning one, he also did not yet hear about the winning ticket of the same draw that he played.
Without reading or hearing any news and without checking his tickets against the draw results, he had no way of knowing that he was actually the $10 million jackpot winner.
Now almost 3 weeks later, he knows of his new riches!
The young father had never registered in the public lotto registry and would purchase tickets un-registred as many others do throughout the Australia region.
Now that he has won the Australia Powerball jackpot and come forward with his ticket, lottery officials have been able to give us some more information about the lucky winner.
Lottery officials stated that when they spoke with him on the phone he was still almost in shock. He stated that the moment of finding out about the win was stunning.
The winner also stated that he checked the ticket a few times over and over again to make sure that he wasn’t mistaken about the numbers on his ticket.
When asked about his plans, the lucky winner says he has not made any specific plans yet and doesn’t really have any clue about what he wants to do with the money for now.
