One lucky person has made history and become Australia’s biggest individual lottery winner after a single ticket scooped Thursday night’s Powerball draw.

Draw 1462 surged to $150 million after the Division One prize was unclaimed for six consecutive weeks.

The winning numbers are 4, 6, 8, 18, 28, 29, and 34. The Powerball is 11. You can check the winning dividends here.

The Lott has revealed the mystery winner purchased their ticket – which matched all seven numbers and the vital Powerball – in South Australia.

They have rocketed up the charts to become the nation’s biggest-ever individual lottery winner, surpassing the previous record set by a Sydney nurse in 2019 when she won more than $107 million.

However, as the entry was not registered, the identity of the ticketholder remains a complete mystery – and all South Australian residents or visitors who purchased an entry are urged to check their tickets.

“Someone has become Australia’s biggest individual lottery winner and possibly doesn’t know it yet. Can you imagine unwittingly walking around with a ticket worth $150 million?” the Lott spokesperson Khat Intrachai said.

“There are 150 million reasons why all South Australian players who had an entry in tonight’s draw should check their ticket as soon as possible.”

In South Australia, lottery winners have just 12 months to claim their prize directly from The Lott. After that time, they must claim the prize directly from the South Australian Government.

Nine players took home more than $276,000 each via Division Two, and $11,834 will be dropped into the accounts of 261 Division Three winners.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said up to half of Australian adults were expected to have an entry into the draw.

“While Australian lotteries have been operating for more than a century, there have only been five draws that have offered a jackpot of $150 million or more,” he said.

It comes after new data released by The Lott revealed that the initials M, J, S, D, G, and K were the most common among all Division One lottery winners in 2023.

Specifically, it was revealed that:

  • People with the initials M, J, S, D and G claimed almost half of the division one wins in 2023 (46.58 per cent)
  • People with the initials S, K, J, D and M took home almost two-thirds of individual division one prize money in 2023 (61.16 per cent)

In contrast, the initials least frequently winning division one were U, X, Z, Y and W.

The Lott says there have been no division one winners in 2023 with the initials of U, X or Z, and only one winner with the initials of Y and Q.

In terms of horoscopes, Librans won more division one prize winnings than any other star sign, followed by Virgo and Cancer. Scorpio and Taurus were the unluckiest of the horoscope signs.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said the data was good news for anyone with a lucky initial – like he has.

“It’s really interesting to see such a concentration of wins among people with such a select group of initials. Not sure if that is proportionate to the initials of the broader population,” he said.

“For the Zorans and Ursulas of the world, never fear. If you’ve got a ticket in your hand for tonight’s draw, you’re still in with a chance to win.

“Naturally, I take great false confidence that people with the initial M who are Librans, like me, won the most division one prizes last year. Could I be calling myself tonight? Probably not, but it’s nice to dream.”
