NSW woman mistakes $20 million Powerball win for $20,000

A NSW resident thought she had won $20,000 from her Powerball ticket but her family pointed out she had won $20 million.

The woman won the only division one winning entry in a Powerball draw on Thursday night, which was purchased from Gladstone Newsagency and General Store.

She told officials she thought she was in “fairyland”.

“I got up this morning and checked my ticket,” she said
“I looked at it and then ran to my family and said, ‘I’ve won $20,000’.
“They looked at it and then looked at me and said, ‘No you haven’t. You’ve won $20 million’.”

She said she would have been happy with $20,000 that she originally thought it was.
“I want to get a house and I’d love to go travelling around the world,” she said.
“I keep thinking I’ll wake up and I’ll be back in reality.”
