Time for Australian Powerball Winners to Live It Up

Two couples are celebrating wins in the Australian Powerball draw. Both now want to use some of their winnings to treat themselves and “live it up a bit.”

The lucky May 19 winner comes from Fairfield in Western Sydney and says that their $40 million Australian Powerball win will allow her to finally travel overseas.

It took over a week for them to discover they had become multi-millionaires. Finally, the rather shocked winner went to the Lott head office to claim her winnings. The female half of the couple admits that “it’s all been a blur since.” Not many people had been told of her lottery success. The winner has pledged to “live as normal but enjoy more little moments and experiences.”

Due to the pandemic, the couple had seen “a pause on their life” but that will change now. “This means our family can go on some lovely holidays that we’ve always wanted to,” said the Australian Powerball winner. “It’s time to treat ourself to some self-care vacations,” she added.

Reading glasses needed

There were more celebrations a week later for a couple from The Hills Shire in New South Wales. They won a $4.6 million Australian Powerball prize in the May 26 draw. The female half of the couple joked “I need to put my reading glasses on. I need to make sure this is real.” That was the reaction when seeing their cheque for $4,662,065.18.

The winning ticket had been purchased from Quakers Hill and that’s where the couple get theirs from. The husband had a hunch that they might just be the $4.6 million winners. That hunch proved to be true when the couple checked their Australian Powerball ticket together. Doing so was a nervous task and they couldn’t stop shaking when their win was revealed.

Mind-blowing

They describe the discovery as “mind-blowing” and a “weird feeling.” Their winnings will be used to pay off bills and help their children. The rest will be saved for their retirement so they can “enjoy ourselves and live it up a bit.”
