One very lucky lotto player from New Zealand has won a $15 million Powerball prize. The player has promised to honour a pact made with his best friend, that he would share the prize with him if he ever won. Unlike many other past lottery winners who broke their pledges, this player has stayed true. Read his full story here.
The Powerball lotto winner is from Porirua in New Zealand and he has pledged to keep his pact after winning $15 million. The friends will be splitting the win 50/50. The winner has chosen to stay anonymous.
They scooped the first prize tier in the New Zealand Powerball draw that was held on the 16th of December. The Powerball winner allegedly just used his “lucky numbers.”
Many years ago, the Powerball winner made a pact with his friend that they would share any big lottery win they had. The lucky lotto player said, “I’m going to tell my mate that $7.5 million is his. But I’m keeping that extra $250,000 that I won with the First division – I think that’s fair.”
The Powerball winner then further added, “I can’t wait to tell him – we want to share the joy of this win and we know that this will absolutely make his family’s Christmas, as well as my own.” Another
At the time of his win discovery, the Powerball lotto winner was at home checking his results online. His daughter had some information to share about the incident: “We were sitting on the couch when he started making funny noises and I thought something was wrong.” The winner asked his daughter to get his wallet for him so they could double check the result. “We all just looked at each other and then started screaming and jumping and hugging each other – a bit of a winning dance. We were so excited,” said the winner’s daughter.
Even despite winning such a massive jackpot, the Powerball winner says that he wants to carry on working. He also wants to share his winnings with his entire family and finally buy the car he has been dreaming about for 20 years.
This just goes to show that if you want to stand a chance to win, you have to play. Play your lucky numbers just like this Powerball winner did, and soon you could be on your way to having millions in the bank.
Best of luck to you,
