The 30-year-old man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was the only winner in the division one Powerball draw on Thursday.

The man says he won’t be selfish with the winnings and plans to share it with loved ones.

“I’ll share it with family and friends – if I’m winning, I want everybody along with me to win,” he said.

“I genuinely want to help people – so some sort of charity.”
