Mystery over Sunbury’s $20m Lotto winners

A couple from Sunbury are the sole winners of a $20 million prize in Powerball draw 1436, drawn on Thursday, 23 November 2023. Their winning ticket was bought at Nextra in Brook St, which has sold 32 division one tickets.

The couple held the only division one winning entry nationally in Thursday’s Powerball draw and pocketed a total prize of $20,000,012.10.

The division one winning entry was unregistered, which meant officials from The Lott had no way of contacting the winners, and had to wait for them to check their ticket and come forward.

The new multi-millionaires shared the moment they discovered their life had changed forever when an official from The Lott confirmed their win Friday morning.

“Wow, oh wow!” the winning wife exclaimed. “That’s pretty incredible! We were so concerned that it wasn’t real. I think we checked the win about 10 times.

Nextra staff, happy for the winners of a $20m winning ticket bought at their store in Brook St.

“We had to do something important this morning, so we hadn’t had a chance to check our Powerball ticket. When we came home, we decided to check the ticket and when the $20 million win appeared we honestly thought it was a scam.

“But now that you’ve confirmed the win once again, wow! We can’t get our heads around this.”

“We buy tickets into the Powerball draws irregularly… on and off. It’s funny because on another line of the ticket we had won a division nine prize of $12.10. That’s usually all we win!”

With the prospect of $20 million coming their way, the couple say they will most likely help family and friends and complete some “other bits and bobs”.

“We will be keeping the news of the win to ourselves,” they said.

Nextra Sunbury manager Melissa Hubbard said she’s thrilled to hear the mystery winners had come forward to claim their multi-million-dollar prize.

“We were so excited to hear that we had sold a division one winning entry in the recent $20 million Powerball draw, and we couldn’t be happier for our winners,” she said.

“This is our 32nd division one winning entry since first opening and we can’t wait to grace more customers with winning tickets and winning smiles.

“We would love to congratulate the Sunbury couple on their life-changing win.”
