New Zealand Powerball winners are celebrating their amazing $13.3 million jackpot win. Like many other winners, they love to come together and share a celebratory meal, and for them, it was fish and chips! Read further to learn more about their story.
The winners are from Dunedin in New Zealand, and they have recently claimed their $13.3 million US Powerball win for the August 20th draw. The winners are so excited because they can now afford to buy a new house and car.
The pair wishes to remain anonymous, like the $50 million Oz Powerball jackpot winners earlier this year. Being humble as they are, they have admitted that it hasn’t been easy coming to terms with this jackpot win. That’s when lottery advisers come in handy to help the winners cope with their windfall.
One of the winners of this massive jackpot said, “It still feels so unreal, I haven’t slept in days. We are still in a state of disbelief,” he said. The wife is the one who checks the New Zealand Powerball results every Sunday morning. She usually reads them with a cup of coffee. She received the shock of her life one Sunday when she sat down to read the results and saw that they had won. “I honestly couldn’t believe it when I saw we had six numbers and the Powerball on one line. I think I checked the ticket about 10 times,” she explained.
When her husband came through from the kitchen, she realised that it was the perfect opportunity to play a trick on him. Each week, he asks her if they won anything with the New Zealand Powerball. Each time she jokes and tells him, yes, but then says no afterwards. This time, she gave him their ticket with all the numbers circled. She asked him, “What do you think this means?” Her husband thought she was joking, of course.
They both went to their local store to get the ticket verified. The ticket was indeed a winner! The store gave them a bottle of champagne to celebrate with.
After that, they decided to celebrate the tremendous good fortune with a simple pleasure of theirs: eating fish and chips! The winners now plan on buying a new car, new house, and going on summer holiday around their country.
