A Brimbank resident could have a $40 million winning Powerball ticket in their pocket and they might not even know it.

One of the two division one winners in the Thursday, May 19 draw purchased their ticket from a Tatts outlet in Brimbank, while the second winner purchased their ticket from a NSW Lotteries outlet in Fairfield.

Both of the winning entries were not registered to a player card, meaning the identity of the Brimbank winner remains a mystery.

The Lott spokesperson James Eddy said the winners were in for the shock of their lives when they realise they had purchased the winning tickets.

“What an incredible night for these two players and we hope they check their tickets soon,” he said.

“We can’t wait to speak to them and get their prize claim process underway.”

The winning numbers were 15, 34, five, 11, 28, eight and 27 and the Powerball number was three.

Mr Eddy said the possibilities were endless in terms of how the winners could use the money.

“Imagine what your first thought would be if you realised you’d won $40 million,” he said.

“Make sure you check your tickets, and if you do discover that you are holding one of the winning tickets, contact The Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize.”
