Seven of the 11 Powerball division one major winning entries were from NSW, three were from Queensland, with the other one in Victoria.
The win comes just weeks after a young couple claimed the $20million Powerball jackpot – as well as picking up another division two prize.
The couple in their 30s from Belconnen in the ACT held the only division winning entry in Powerball’s draw 1320 that amounted to $20,507,103.16.
They also managed to score division two 19 times, which brought the total windfall to an incredible $20,852,900.31.
The young couple who couldn’t contain their excitement over their huge win on Thursday night were still hard at work when they received the call.
The winning man said: ‘I saw I had two missed calls, and I thought, “who’s calling me at this time?”’

‘I thought, “I’m not answering this. They’re probably ringing with bad news”. I’m glad I answered now!’
The man said he and his wife don’t buy lottery tickets often but had decided to try their luck to see what would happen.
The couple shared they often fantasised about what they would do if they ever won the jackpot and now look forward to making some of those long-held dreams a reality.
‘This is going to mean a lot for the whole family,’ the winning man shared.
‘I want to help my parents and siblings. I want to buy a house for our young family. It’s going to make a world of difference.’
Last year, a total of $3.33billion in prize money was claimed with over 111.6 million winners from Australian Lottery draws.
