Online Lottery winner exists! While there are heaps of lottery lovers, like myself, who love being able to buy their lottery tickets online there are many more who are scared to do so. The biggest reason for not buying their lottery ticket online is because they don’t trust any of the online lottery sites, Even though I’ve thoroughly tested all the sites that I represent on this site.
I’ve even showed my readers proof of my wins, albeit small ones that they were. Most of these naysayers will tell you that were you lucky enough to win a jackpot you would never get to see that money. Well, as I’m about to reveal in this post, I have definite proof that this is not the case. An Iraqi man not only bought a ticket in the Oregon lottery online, he actually won, winning himself the entire jackpot of $6.4 million dollars.
How did he manage to get his hand on the winning Oregon lottery ticket whilst living in Iraq? He used the services of theLotter,com. No bullshit! His win was so amazing that it was even reported by NBC! This was the first time in Oregon’s history that a man living overseas bought a winning Megabucks ticket online!
[highlight]And guess what? Even when consulting with legal experts the online sales was deemed to be legal![/highlight]
The article goes on to say that the Iraqi man flew in personally to pick up his prize, which he decided to take over 25 years. What it didn’t say was that theLotter.com personally flew him over to Oregon so he could pick up his prize.
Another article, three days later in the NYTimes, goes on to talk about the legality of purchasing the ticket online. The crux of the matter is although the winner purchased his ticket online, a real person walked into the Binky’s store to purchase the ticket on behalf of theLotter.com. The owner of Binky also received $64000, a 1% bonus for selling the ticket. She didn’t much care who bought the ticket or from what country he came from.
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 :ta_da: 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.
Here are your results for Powerball Draw 1017:
–> Main numbers: 3 15 19 26 35 1 –> Powerball: 18 > Ticket E0BD-2DB2-1785-2B49 (9 x Powerball Standard) was a *Winning Ticket!*
Wager #000000000000000004020433592 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?
