Thursday night’s Powerball major prize of $20 million will jackpot to next week after division one failed to be won.

While there are no new millionaires tonight, three players were lucky enough to win division two – taking home $141,345 each.

Last Powerball winner claimed $50 million prize days later
Last week, there were no division one or division two winners in Powerball, however the week before, one lucky person won the entire division one $50m prize for themselves.
The numbers for draw number 1296 were 6, 16, 18, 29, 30, 33, 35 and the Powerball number was 4.
However, it took days for the winner to come forward and claim their prize. When they did, it was revealed the lucky punter was a mum from Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
She said she almost didn’t buy a Powerball entry because she didn’t want to leave the house in wet weather, but a last minute change of plans saw her “try her luck”.
“It’s thrown everything upside down in the best possible way. It’s a dream come true,” she said after her win was confirmed.
