One very lucky Aussie won a $1 million US Powerball prize on Wednesday 19 October 2016 playing US Powerball online with theLotter! The lucky winner (or ‘G’ as we shall call him) did not seek publicity. However, we’ve dubbed him ‘the Wonder from Down Under!’
Below is an audio recording of the telephone call ‘G’ received to notify him of his incredible win. Surprise, disbelief, joy, it’s all there in this incredible phone call as the lucky winner learns his life has changed in an instant!
A Winning Commitment
While Luck comes quickly to some players, G.’s incredible $1 million win was years in the making. In fact, G.’s change of fortune was possible simply because he had the persistence and faith to keep playing to make his dreams come true. His advice to other players: ‘Just keep your faith. Never doubt yourself and keep your faith, that’s the only thing that you can do.’ There you have it, straight from the $1 million US Powerball prize-winning man himself!
Good Great Things Come to Those Who Wait!

Powerball Fortune Found in Florida
As you can see from G.’s ticket above, and yes that really is his ticket, he correctly chose all five main numbers to win US Powerball’s amazing $1 million second prize in draw 2016/84 that took place on Wednesday 19 October 2016. After taxes, G. took home AUD$937,758 or about $700,000. His winning numbers were 10-16-38-43-63 and Powerball 16.
