Last minute decision leads to $20 million Powerball win!
An Oxenford man bagged the entire $20 million Powerball jackpot last night! The ecstatic winner was just about to nod off when we reached out to break the news.
“I normally buy an entry at the shops, but I didn’t get the chance today as I left it quite late. It was after 5pm and I almost didn’t grab a ticket at all. I’m glad I did!” the winning man said.
“I’d like to retire earlier than planned, and I’d like to set the kids up with a house.
“Twenty million dollars! That’s a lot of money. I don’t think I’ll even believe it’s real when it’s in my bank account.”

“I only started playing TattsLotto two weeks ago. I thought, ‘let’s see how we go’, and now you’re calling me.
“This is absolutely fantastic timing. We’ve been wanting to buy a house in the area, and now we can!"
