Words by Nick Crockford

Sixteen Caboolture shoppers are sporting winning smiles today after their syndicate scored division one in last night’s Powerball draw.

Their 16-person store syndicate held the only division one winning entry nationally in Powerball draw 1448.

In addition to scoring the $4,907,068.89 division one prize, the syndicate’s PowerHit entry also won multiple divisional prizes, bolstering the group’s total to $5,164,871.49.

Each syndicate member took home a $322,804.47 share.

But, some syndicate members may not yet have realised they have won, leading lottery officials to urge players to check their tickets.

Entries into the store syndicate were sold at The Local Caboolture South, in Market Plaza, on Morayfield Road.

“This is the first division one win I’ve been part of so it’s a very exciting day not only for my winning customers but for me also,’ Local Caboolture South owner Sandeep Arora said.

“To see it shared between so many as well is just wonderful.

“It will definitely change each person’s life in different ways and what a way to kick off the weekend!

“I just want to wish them all the best for the future and I hope they enjoy celebrating this winning news.”

The Lott spokesperson James Eddy said some syndicate members held unregistered entries.

“While members of this winning group might not know each other, they are now united by the fact that last night they each became a Powerball winner,” he said.

“Some of these division one winning syndicate members have already begun celebrating their good fortune knowing their bank account is about to be boosted with more than $300,000.

“While we’ll be reaching out to those winners who are registered, there are still some unregistered syndicate members who may have yet to discover their good news.

“If you purchased a share in a syndicate for the week’s Powerball draw, today’s the day to check it!

“If you discover you’re holding a winning share, call The Lott on 131 868 to start the prize claim process!”

The winning numbers were 35, 34, 19, 10, 18, 15 and 5. The Powerball number was 20.

The Lott’s division one winning tally has now reached 258 so far in Financial Year 24, including 61 won by Golden Casket customers.

Tickets can be purchased at any licenced lottery outlet, online from thelott.com or via The Lott mobile app.
