The jackpot for the next drawing of the multi-state lottery game, which is called the Powerball, has reached a record high of over $162 million.
A nurse from Sydney is currently the country’s richest lottery winner. She has opened up about her experience after she claimed her prize.
The jackpot for the next drawing of the multi-state lottery game, which is called the Powerball, has reached a record high of over $162 million. No division one ticket was sold for the last week’s drawing, which increased the prize to an unprecedented $100 million.
Due to the massive amount of money that’s being offered in the next draw, many Australians are expected to have an entry in the game. James Eddy, a spokesperson for The Lott, said that the company is expecting a busy time in the store and online ahead of the event.
To be in with a chance, players must purchase an entry by 7pm AEST on Thursday. However, what happens to the winners once they receive the call?
They can choose to stay in their job or tell their friends and family, or they can quit their job immediately. A nurse from Sydney won the country’s richest lottery prize of $107 million in 2019.
According to the nurse, if it’s possible, she would recommend staying in with the job and going to work the next day.
She also said that it’s important to take some time to think about the situation and allow the news to sink in. She noted that going about your daily life for a few weeks would allow you to maintain a level of normality.
One of the most important steps that the winner should take after winning the lottery is to find a financial adviser who they can trust.
After two weeks, the money came through, and the nurse was able to secure a financial adviser who she trusted. When it comes to sharing the news, the nurse said that it’s important to take some time to think about who they want to tell and how.
The nurse from Sydney was able to purchase a home that she and her family can enjoy for many years.
However, she said that winning the lottery also gave her the opportunity to remove the guilt she felt when she was treating herself.
