One family in New Zealand have gotten extremely lucky after they won big with the New Zealand Powerball. They couldn’t contain their excitement while they were on their way to the Auckland Lotto NZ HQ in order to pick up their $7 million
The lucky family come from Timaru. They preferred to remain anonymous after they knew that their $7 million would make them household names. They mentioned that upon discovering the win, they had to check their ticket “about a hundred times” just to make sure that it was really happening to them. They absolutely could not believe they had won.
The family said that even after they had tried to have a good night’s rest, they still woke up to find that it still didn’t feel real to them. They couldn’t come to terms with how lucky their family had gotten.
They had bought their winning ticket on Saturday the 9th of January. They got their Powerball ticket at a Pak
The family had no knowledge that the winning Powerball ticket had come from their town until one of the members find out on social media. The syndicate leader checked their Powerball results online, but not once expected that they could have the chance of becoming the big lucky winners.
“I honestly thought we’d never win. I’ve been playing Lotto for years, but never thought I’d win,” said the ecstatic lottery winner. They continued further to say that it became clear after checking the Powerball results online. They had matched all the numbers correctly.
“I shut the computer off! I didn’t want to finish checking the ticket, I was way too nervous,” they added. However, after the family got all excited and worked up, they each took turns in checking the ticket. They couldn’t stop shaking and couldn’t quite believe that they had matched all the numbers.
They haven’t yet chosen how to spend their winnings. They haven’t decided to quit their jobs yet, either. A press contact said that the family are huge Rugby Sevens fans, and might follow them around for a while watching all their games as a family.
Congratulations to them! That just goes to show that you’ve got to be in it if you want to win it!
