Massive Powerball Winners Stay Humble

An extremely lucky family from Rorotua in New Zealand had absolutely no idea what was waiting for them after they bought a staggering $24.3 million winning Powerball ticket. The family says that they will carry on working because they enjoy having a routine and a reason to get up in the mornings. Read their amazing full story here. 

The family’s massive windfall came in the Powerball draw date held on Saturday the 27th of June. The winners have chosen to remain anonymous, but we do have some insightful information for you. The winners bought their lucky Powerball ticket from their local dairy the “Springfield Superette and Lotto” in Rotorua, where they have been buying their tickets for the past 17 years on a regular basis. Do you see the trend in all of our stories? Most of the players who win are people who play the game regularly! 

Shop Owner

The owner of the store’s name is Raj Jumar. He went into work on Sunday even though it was his off-day, just in case the Powerball winners came through the store to claim their prize. At 4pm, that is exactly what happened. Raj said, “They didn’t know they had won. He thought I was kidding when I told him.” This lucky family are the latest lottery millionaires in New Zealand after earlier this month when a man from Whangamata won a whopping $4 million playing the Big Wednesday lottery game. 

Te family’s winning ticket managed to match ALL Lotto numbers including the all-important and game-changing Powerball number. They won themselves a powerful Jackpot amount of $24,300,822. That amount was made up of a Powerball First Division prize worth $23,800,822 and a Lotto First Division prize of $500,000 shared with a couple from Waihi. Just last week it happened that the luckiest New Zealand Powerball number was 9, but funny enough in the draw date of June 27th, it was 3 that stole the throne as the luckiest number. 

Upon discovering their blessed Powerball windfall, one of the winners said that he immediately called his family. The winner can clearly recall how the incident happened: “My wife and kids were screaming and jumping up and down in the background. It’s a real high – we’re just delighted to be winners.” 

Happy Family

Although this family have just become multi-millionaires, they said they plan to keep their lives as normal as possible, and they all plan on keeping their jobs. This way of life of a newfound millionaire reminds us of New Zealand Lotto winners who won $12.3 million last month, while another lottery winner by the name of Lacey won $5 million and cut short her press conference to go back to work. 

The win is the fifth largest Powerball prize won in Lotto history and the seventh Powerball First Division prize won this year. 

Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen of the lotto world. The stories come from players who play regularly, and never from those who buy one lotto ticket in their entire lifetime. You need to be in it to win it, and play regularly if you ever hope to win massive jackpots online.
