For most Aussies scoring between $1 million and $5 million would be enough to make their dreams come true. These are the winning numbers.
The Powerball jackpot has climbed to $8 million for this Thursday’s draw.
It’s the sixth time this year Powerball has offered an $8 million jackpot.
So far in 2021, there have been seven Powerball division one winners who have collectively scored $230 million.
New South Wales players have enjoyed a strong Powerball performance so far this year, with five of the seven division one winning entries landing in that state. The other two division one winning entries were from Queensland.
Matt Hart, The Lott spokesman, said a single division one winner tonight would not only take home $8 million but also become Powerball’s eighth newly-minted millionaire this year.
“New South Wales players have had a stellar run this year in Powerball, with the majority of division one wins landing that state. But, history has taught us that a Powerball win can land anywhere in the country. Who knows where our next Powerball multi-millionaire will be made. Perhaps we’ll find out tonight,” he said.
The winning numbers are: 5, 12, 10, 6, 2, 24, 25 | Powerball: 20
A hefty Powerball division one win would be one way to enter winter on a high and surely give you a warm glow for the months and years ahead, he added.
Recent research from The Lott showed $8 million would be more than enough for most Aussies to realise their dreams
For 37 per cent of people surveyed, $1 million would give them all their dreams, while more than a third nominated $5 million as the winning figure. But for more than 25 per cent of people, more than $10 million was necessary to realise their dreams.
