Australian Player Wins $1 Million in the US Powerball with theLotter Australia

On Wednesday, October 19th 2016, one very lucky player from Australia has scooped a fantastic $1 million lottery prize by playing playing US Powerball online online on theLotter Australia. He chose to go by ‘G.’ to preserve his anonymity, but we’ve decided to dub him ‘the Wonder from Down Under’ because we’re very proud of our Aussie winner!

The Phone Call That Changed G.’s Life

G. was lucky enough to get that phone call we all want to get after playing the lottery. We were so happy to let him know that he is a millionaire and needless to say, he was thrilled to get the good news! He was surprised at first, then he couldn’t believe that it was actually happening, but then he embraced it! One phone call changed G.’s life completely!

Solid Commitment to the Lottery

If you’re wondering how G. got to be a millionaire, well it was clearly through a huge stroke of luck, but it was his perseverance and his commitment to the lottery that finally enabled him to win. In fact, this is the advice that G. has for other lottery players: ‘Just keep your faith. Never doubt yourself and keep your faith, that’s the only thing that you can do.’ Coming from a man who is now $1 million richer thanks to his passion for the lottery, this is clearly sound advice.

Great Lottery Prizes Come to Those Who Play!

G.'s story starts out like in the lottery movies. This $1 million prize was not the first lottery prize that G. has won on theLotter. He has been playing with us since 2003, when he discovered just how “convenient and easy to use” our services are. Throughout the years, he has had 452 wins in various lotteries, including a AUD$325 prize in the Germany Lotto and a AUD$115 win in the Swiss Lotto. His favorite games remain the lotto giants, US Powerball and Mega Millions. As for his number choices, G. is a fan of the Quick Pick option, but he has been known to play some lucky numbers in the past.

G’s Million Dollar Ticket

In the picture above, you can see G.’s actual winning ticket for the draw 2016/84, which took place on Wednesday, October 19th 2016. He has managed to guess all the five main numbers for the US Powerball, which were 10-16-38-43-66, which earned him the second prize, worth a whopping $1 million. G. chose 16 for the Powerball number, but had he chosen 23 instead, he would have been the jackpot winner. However, he is more than happy with his million-dollar turnout. After taxes, “the Wonder from Down Under” was left with AUD$937,758, which is the equivalent of about $700,000.
