One lucky Australian has become an overnight millionaire after winning The Lott’s division one Powerball prize. 

The newly-rich NSW or ACT man claimed a whopping $30million after matching all eight numbers, the only entry to do so. 

The winning numbers from Thursday night’s draw were 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 19, 25 and the Powerball is 20

Five entries claimed the division two prize with each lucky winner taking home more than $100,000. 

The winning numbers from Thursday night's draw were 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 19, 25 and the Powerball is 20

Last month, a western Sydney man was one of two $40million Powerball winners, splitting the division one prize with a grandmother from Campbelltown. 

The Smithfield resident hadn’t even known he held a victorious ticket because one of the digits in the phone number The Lott had for him was incorrect.  

‘I didn’t know I’d won,’ the multi-millionaire said at the time.  

‘I’d heard there was another Powerball winner they were trying to contact.

‘I even said to my friend, ”we’ll never win, only old people win.

‘They said you’d been ringing but I didn’t get a call. There was a digit wrong on my mobile number.’ 

The recipient of the other $40million told The Lott her grandson had predicted she was going to win the Powerball prize. 

‘I’m a bit gobsmacked. I’m in shock. I can’t believe it,’ she said.
