One very lucky international lotto player from New Zealand has just revealed to lottery officials that they won the Powerball jackpot using the numbers that were found on a late family member’s lottery ticket sitting in a drawer. Read the incredible lottery tale here. 

The winner’s family is from Tauranga and they bought their ticket from AJ’s Lotto store. They won a magnificent $7 million jackpot prize with the New Zealand Powerball, as well as $100,000 in New Zealand’s first lotto division. This happened not long after a different family also managed to win $7 million with Powerball last month in New Zealand. 

You will not believe this, but the numbers found on the ticket: 11-12-13-17-18-19-7-5 weren’t just random picks. The family told lottery press that they found these numbers on an old Lotto ticket that one of their now deceased relatives bought and left in a drawer for quite some time. 

“We were clearing out some old drawers and discovered a family member’s old lotto ticket with the lucky numbers they played before they had passed away,” explained one of the Powerball winners. “We figured, why not give them another go? They could still have some luck about them,” they added. 

It was these old lucky numbers that fulfilled their destiny of winning the lottery. The family member who had bought the ticket hadn’t gotten around to checking the ticket after the draw had taken place. They started to hear the gossip that someone in the area had won big. “The day after the win, Tauranga was abuzz with the big news. Everyone was talking about it,” said a family member. 

The Powerball lotto winners finally checked their tickets out of curiosity from all the hype. They checked the results at the same store they bought the ticket from. They couldn’t believe they were winners. The lady behind the counter had a huge smile on her face and was convinced they really were the big winners everyone was looking for. 

“I tapped the lady behind the counter on the shoulder and said, ‘I think you’ll want to see this.’ That’s when she turned to me and said, ‘I knew it would be you!’ It was really a funny moment,” recalled the winner. The family haven’t decided on how to spend the winnings yet, but they definitely wanted to celebrate with fish and chips by the beach, as it is a tradition. 

Congratulations to them!
