If you read my last post you’d know that I bought a ticket in Thursday’s Aussie Powerball. That’s not at all unusual as I normally buy a lottery ticket when it jackpots to an amount that is worth winning. I’m sure most of you would agree that getting your hands on $70 million is certainly worth winning. What was unusual is that I actually got to share on a tiny portion of that $70 million.
Aussie Powerball Results Thursday 12/11/15
The image you see on the left is a screen capture taken from my iPhone’s OZ Lotteries app. It shows you several things.
The first is the amount I won, a whole $14 The next important part of the image is the actual Aussie Powerball results. The numbers being 3 15 19 26 35 1 and Powerball 18.
The next part of the image shows you my actual Powerball ticket numbers. You’ll notice how the winning numbers of my tickets are all highlighted.
The last part of the image shows the dividends part of the Aussie Powerball results. As you can see I just scraped in getting division 8.
Three Winners Share $70 Million Jackpot
You’ll notice that three very lucky people shared in the $70 million jackpot. Unfortunately South Australia missed out on sharing the $70 million Powerball jackpot. Even so, the division one wins were spread across the country with one winning entry purchased in Queensland, one in New South Wales and one in Western Australia.
We do know that one of the winners purchased their ticket in the Queensland town of Ayr! He/ she bought their Powerball entry from Tosh’s Convenience Store in Chippendale Street. I can only imagine their joy at joining the ranks of multimillionaire lotto winners.
Another multi-millionaire purchase their ticket in Oak Flats in the south-east suburb of New South Wales.As yet there are no details of that winner as they didn’t register their entry. One can only hope that they haven’t lost their ticket or thrown it away by accident. One of the many reasons why I buy my lottery tickets online is so I don’t have to worry about that sort of crap!
Not only can I check the results online, as you can see by the image on the left, I also get an email that informs me how my ticket went.
Ticket E0BD-2DB2-1785-2B49 (9 x Powerball Standard) was a *Winning Ticket!*
1 x Division 8 ($14.00) = $14.00
Total Prize: $14.00"
The question now is how long will it take for the Aussie Powerball to jackpot to another Aussie record? When it does you can be assured that I'll be on my iPhone app buying my next Powerball ticket!
So, how did you go with your Powerball ticket. Did you manage to score a winner?
Unlike America Aussies rarely get to see big lottery jackpots. While this weeks Powerball is Australia’s biggest jackpot of the year it falls far short of America’s lottery jackpots. The good thing for Aussies though is Australia’s biggest jackpot beats the US Powerball by $20 million!
Australia’s Biggest Jackpot Is Powerball’s $70 Million
Those who know me know that I’ll only invest money in a lottery when there’s a fair bit of cash to be won.
Well, seeing as how Australia’s biggest lottery is worth $70 million I think now is a good time to get a ticket. There’s no question which online agent I’m going to use either. OZ Lotteries is the obvious choice because they offer the best online price for Aussie lotteries.
Something else that I love about them is they have their own app. That means I was able to purchase my $70 million Powerball ticket using my iPhone.
Moments after purchasing my Powerball Ticket online I got the following email.
Please do not hesitate to email us should you have any queries regarding this entry.
That’s what I love about buying lottery tickets online. You never have to worry about losing your ticket again. You never have to worry about throwing out a winning ticket because you didn’t check it properly. All the winning numbers are highlighted for you so winning tickets stand out a mile.
