A woman from St Albans in Melbourne and another contestant in New South Wales last month shared the $80 million Powerball worth $40 million each.
The woman was shocked when she won the mammoth prize.
“I’m still shocked. I’ve barely slept since I discovered the win,” she told The Lott.
“It’s hard to put into words the feeling that you’ve won $40 million. I don’t think it really happened to me yet.’
She revealed that her ticket had actually been a gift and that she didn’t immediately check the numbers before calling them.
“When I did check, I immediately called my family and they were just as shocked as I was,” she said.
“There was certainly a lot of cheering and tears!”
