An unregistered punter from Victoria has become an instant multi-millionaire, bagging the entire jackpot in last night’s $55 million Powerball draw.

The unidentified player correctly selected the six winning numbers for draw 1130– 32, 7, 5, 34, 38 and 11 – as well as the crucial Powerball, 12.

But they weren’t the only one to wake up rich – 14 division two winners will each walk away with $86,113.10 after they got all six numbers correct, missing out on the Powerball.

Winners between divisions two to eight shared in a total prize pool of $22.24 million, as more than one million prizes were won nationwide.

Tatts Victoria is urging everyone with tickets to have them checked so the prize collection process can begin.

The last time the Powerball hit $55 million was in January last year, but the prize was split between 21 Queensland Government workers as part of a private syndicate.
