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.
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.
