The $100m Powerball has become the second biggest lottery prize ever in Australia and it only had one winner.
A Western Sydney dad is the sole winner of the $100 million prize, even with around half of the country expected to have purchased a ticket.
“Wait a second! Wait a second!” the Bankstown man laughed hysterically when an official from The Lott called to break the news according to news.com.au.
“Oh! Oh! Are you sure?! Have you got the right person?
“This is unbelievable! I’ve won $100 million!? Am I dreaming? I’m a millionaire now?!”

The winner said that he would still front up at work today only to be interrupted by his wife who questioned his choice, saying ““Working?! We’re multi-millionaires now!”
The only other Aussie who has taken home a bigger jackpot in Powerball’s history was a Sydney nurse who won $107 million in January 2019.
