Jobless Australian wins $50 million lottery


An Australian man’s life has been changed forever after he won more than $50 million (NZ$54 million) in the lottery.

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

NSW Lotteries released a statement saying the man said he might faint.

“It’s life changing! I don’t even know how many zeroes are in [$54] million,” he said.

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.”
