A NOWRA resident is Australia’s latest multi-millionaire.

The person whose gender has not been revealed was the lucky winner of $7.5 million in Thursday night’s Powerball draw.

A regular Powerball player, the winner said becoming a multi-millionaire overnight was unbelievable. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I saw the numbers on my ticket. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me or that I was checking the wrong numbers,” the winner said. “I kept checking my ticket over and over and over again. “I play Powerball most weeks but didn’t ever think I’d win. I haven’t even had a chance to think about what I’ll do with my prize money, I’m still in shock.” The winning entry was bought in East Nowra.
