A father from Canberra reacted with disbelief after discovering that he had won Thursday’s $60 million Powerball jackpot.

Tonight's U.S. Powerball Jackpot
$94 Million*
    *Jackpot converted to AUD and rounded to the nearest million.

    The lucky player won the Division 1 prize by matching the numbers 1, 6, 11, 16, 17, 22 and 29, plus the Powerball of 2, in Draw 1363 on Thursday 30 June.

    He had played online but had yet to check the results when he was contacted by an official from lottery operator The Lott straight after the draw to tell him he had won.

    While he was so shocked to receive the news that he admitted it left him feeling like he might ‘have a heart attack’, he also had an inkling that it was going to be his night.

    He said: “You know what? I had a feeling it was The Lott calling me! I thought, ‘They’re going to call me at 8.30pm tonight’. Wow! Wow! Wow!”

    The winner revealed that he would definitely give up his job, while he would focus on using the money to support his family after a difficult year.

    “I’ve been dreaming of this day forever,” he said. “I play the same numbers all the time. They were inspired by my family.

    “I’m going to retire. I have children and a very large family. They’re going to be looked after. I can’t believe it. Oh my god.

    “It’s been a tough year. This is life-changing. I’m going to pay off some bills and enjoy living debt-free. I’m going to take a long-overdue holiday with my family.”

    The Canberra man’s payout is one of the largest of the year so far. The biggest Powerball jackpot of 2022 was worth $126 million and was split between two winners on 24 February.
