$80 Million Powerball Jackpot Split Two Ways

Two lucky players split a Powerball jackpot of $80 million in the latest draw on Thursday 19 May. One of the winners came from New South Wales and the other from Victoria.

    The winning numbers were 5, 8, 11, 15, 27, 28 and 34, with a Powerball of 3. There were more than 2.6 million winners across the nine prize divisions, with two ticket holders matching all the numbers to snag $40 million each.

    It was the second-largest Division 1 prize of the year, and came after a run of five draws without a winner since a New South Wales player banked $20 million on 7 April.

    Lottery officials were not able to contact either of the jackpot winners immediately after the draw, as both tickets belonged to unregistered players.

    However, it was revealed that one entry was purchased from a NSW Lotteries outlet in the City of Fairfield, while the other entry was purchased from a Tatts outlet in the City of Brimbank in Victoria.

    “What an incredible night for these two players and we hope they check their tickets soon. We can’t wait to speak to them and get their prize claim process underway,” said James Eddy, a spokesperson for lottery operator The Lott.

    “Check your tickets Australia! There are 40 million reasons why every player should rush and check those numbers. Who knows, it could be you!

    “Imagine what your first thought would be if you realised you’d won $40 million. Imagine what this prize could mean for you, your family and even your friends. The possibilities are endless.”

    The only time that Powerball has been larger this year was back on 24 February, when two players shared a jackpot of $126 million. The Division 1 prize now resets to $4 million for the next draw.
