A Victorian mum was one of two division one winners, taking home $50 million — with a ticket she purchased online at the last minute.
The woman, from Melton, vowed to spend her winnings on her children.
She was the lucky holder of one of the two division one-winning entries in Powerball draw 1420.
However, her contact details were incorrect, meaning she didn’t realise she was successful until Friday morning.
She received the news while at work and couldn’t contain her excitement.
“I can’t believe this,” she said. “What a dream come true.”
