When this Jackpocket player moved all the way from Australia to Dayton, Ohio for work, the last thing he expected to do was win $1,000,000—but that's exactly what happened!
"I was scrolling through emails just doing a bit of work, and then I saw a pop-up to check the app," the winner recalled. "I saw '$1 million' in the message and had to read it a few times."
He picked numbers that were special to him and his wife, and his winning ticket matched all five regular numbers drawn (17, 24, 48, 62, 68) in the July 5th drawing for $546M, only missing the red Powerball (23). We asked him how it felt to score seven-figures:
“To be honest, there was not lots of shouting or hoorays or anything like that, just more of a case of letting it sink in...It's still a bit surreal.”
“We just figured that while we’re here for a few short years, we might as well get a few tickets and see what happens,” he said. “We feel very lucky.”
