An extremely lucky man in his 30s has won the entire $60 million Powerball jackpot.

After a few missed calls from The Lott officials, a man from Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Australia finally picked up the phone and was informed that he was the sole winner of the massive jackpot.

The man said, "I know you've confirmed it, but initially, when I saw this on The Lott app I thought this has to be a gee up or a glitch in the system. Surely I haven't just won $60 million."

"I don't think I'm going to get a lot of sleep tonight."

He bought his 36-game QuickPick entry online.

The winning numbers in the Powerball draw 1338 held on Thursday, January 6 were 15, 5, 28, 20, 29, 34 and 27. The Powerball number was 8.

The $60 million jackpot winner said he would use his windfall to "buy my first house, help family and friends and have plenty of holidays".

Despite his newly-acquired fortune, he has vowed to continue working, "I still plan to turn up to work in 2022 too."

"Mate, this is bloody unreal. I think anyone who gets hit with this info would think it's surreal. It's just unbelievable. There is a massive shock factor. You always daydream, but you never really expect it to happen. It's a lottery after all. For me, it's a lot to process. I just didn't really expect it."

The Queenslander is the first Powerball division one winner of 2022.

There were 1,708,139 winners in divisions 2 to 9 who won more than $31.26 million, including four division 2 winners who each won $216,329.20.

How amazing very few have the great opportunity to earn so much money so we must make the best decision to grow our money and not waste it in this way I am proud of this man for making the best decision

this prize is a very big prize and it is really unreal for me. I'm not talking about the prize, but the number of millions that is huge, compared to what is won in a slot game. Now who knows if things will change, because this prize is a very big one and it is really unreal for me.

The logical thing with so much money is to start a business of your own and become the boss and do whatever you like , and help of course family . Maybe invest here and there , buy gold , land . You cannot keep on working for peanuts , not even for fun . Only Forrest Gump would find such pleasure , and without any payment , lol . Man , $60M win is unreal , you become the boss , you can do whatever you like , live in luxury , have parties everyday Cool

he has a place to invest and he is not a great businessman to risk most of his money at once. He will invest with head and will probably be successful, if he has good ideas. Now it just depends on him. where he wants to invest or spend his money
 eloy220/01/2022 01:59:04 GMT
oh what a prize!!!! What a good decision of this man who, after having earned so much money, wants to continue playing to improve himself. There are many people who waste money and do not think about being great every day, so they should always make the best decision that would completely change your life. Good luck!
 CALICUL20/01/2022 01:59:45 GMT
I can't believe there are so many players who have increased the jackpot to this huge amount. So much money is earned in a lifetime by an average businessman, but to earning all money in a few minutes is wonderful.
 eloy221/01/2022 03:36:13 GMT
Felicidades ! Que buena decisión la de este hombre que prefirió seguir trabajando a pesar de haber ganado 6 millones de dólares. Me parece una increíble y buena decisión. ¡Buena suerte!

many winners in the Powerball division and because of this this huge amount could be accumulated. I think it's nice to take such a win, but others who have played are disillusioned and probably jealous of this winner. This is the situation and for the winner is very cool
 eloy223/01/2022 05:47:56 GMT
You are very right, my friend, there are many players who feel jealous or angry because they did not have the opportunity to win such a prize, but we must always feel happy for the achievement of this player who made the best decision in his life and for all the players who did not win. a victory like this never give up because at some point luck will come for each of you and you will be in the same situation as this man
 dule-vu23/01/2022 06:38:08 GMT
Everobody would like to win this amount,so ofcourse they are jealous!
 eloy224/01/2022 23:44:02 GMT
Of course my friend, but one day we will all have the opportunity to win, just like this man, and we will make the best decision. Good luck to all the players.
 dule-vu24/01/2022 23:44:12 GMT
It will be good if somebody from us win something like this Big Smile
 eloy227/01/2022 03:04:06 GMT
it would be great to win $ 60 million hopefully luck will come to us at any time good luck to all players
 dule-vu27/01/2022 03:30:27 GMT
It would be good if you win 60000$ and not to talk about 60 millions!
 eloy228/01/2022 01:21:55 GMT
I don't care how much I win, I would be very happy if I had the opportunity to win a prize, so congratulations to this player and good luck to all.
 dule-vu28/01/2022 01:22:04 GMT
Its important to win,not to lose whole time!
 milan_timko29/01/2022 09:09:47 GMT
WoW 60 million check Dollar that's a Nice win!
It's unreal to win a jackpot that big, that it's a good thing for him to keep doing his work. Stay alive and don't get lost in that overwellmed feeling.
Eventually work is not a bad thing if it's something you like. If you can do what you want, and it doesnt give you Daily stress i should never stop it. I would work in a different way and not full-time anymore but would still do something.
 dule-vu29/01/2022 09:14:16 GMT
I wouldnt work,thats for sure!life is short!
 eloy231/01/2022 04:42:39 GMT

You need some luck!its not just to pick numbers and to win!
 eloy204/02/2022 01:27:57 GMT
I had seen this news a long time ago but I always like to comment on it because it seems to me the best news that I have been able to observe in the wonderful luck of this man and the best decision he could have made to continue working despite the fact that he had won $60 million luck for all
 dule-vu04/02/2022 01:28:08 GMT
To work with 60 millions?why?life is to short!
Try to use .,!? or any other symbol,you can have all in one sentence!
Johnnie walker is always last Blink
 ligador3704/02/2022 03:35:59 GMT
Wow, just awesome! What a nice amount of money to win. I applaud the decision of the man (very young actually) to continue working. It is not necessary to go crazy when earning so much money, because they say that there is a disease (when one acquires a lot of money instantly). I know cases, and despite the fact that it can mean a favorable change, it ends up harming. So in this case, going about your daily life is a good thing. Although in principle, a well-deserved vacation haha
 dule-vu04/02/2022 05:58:43 GMT
Everybody will choose what is best for them,but with that amount of money,to work,not to have own business is silly!enjoy in life,raise kids,grandchildren,so many interesting in life!
