The winner won a massive four million dollars in Thursday night’s Powerball after purchasing the winning division one entry.

But officials from the Lott say they have no way of letting the winner know they have taken out the huge prize.
Aussies who entered the draw have been urged to check their tickets in case they’re holding the winning entry.
The winning ticket was bought at the Lilydale Village Lotto & News, around 40 kilometres north-east of Melbourne.
The owner of the newsagency Rakesh Aggarwal was thrilled that one of the winning entries was sold at his store.
‘There aren’t enough words for us to express the excitement we’re feeling after helping change someone’s life in last night’s $8 million Powerball draw,’ Mr Aggarwal told the lot.
The winning numbers in last night’s draw (number 1434) were 35, 15, 3, 23, 34, 29, and 30.
