A Canberra dad is $60 million richer after claiming the entire Powerball division one jackpot.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1363 on Thursday were 22, 6, 1, 16, 17, 29 and 11, and the Powerball was 2.

“Are you serious?” he was said to have told the caller from The Lott when he heard the good news.

“I’m laughing. I’m lost for words. I’m pacing around. 

“I’m going to have a heart attack.

“You know what? I had a feeling it was The Lott calling me. I thought, ‘They’re going to call me at 8.30pm tonight’. Wow. Wow. Wow.”

The man said he always played the same numbers inspired by his family.

This time, they won him $60,701,558.85, once his division one win and 19 division two prizes were taken into account.

“I’m going to retire,” he said, 

“I have children and a very large family. They’re going to be looked after. I can’t believe it. Oh my god.”

The lucky winner said the result was life-changing after a touch year.

“I’m going to pay off some bills and enjoy living debt-free. I’m going to take a long-overdue holiday with my family,” he said.

“I can’t believe it. I’m shaking.”

Divisions two to nine paid out about $32 million combined.
