Winner Powerball $ 50 million has NOT STILL HADEN – players are urged to check their tickets and the ticket is limited to a big city
- The remaining Powerball winner has still not won $ 50 million
- De Lott reduced the location of the mystery winner in a suburb of Brisbane
- The $ 150 million prize was also won by a father from Sydney and a man from Brisbane
A lucky Australian is the newest multi-millionaire in the country after winning the Powerball jackpot last week, but they still haven't claimed their prize.
Three people won a share of Powerball & # 39; s record-breaking $ 150 million draw last Thursday and took home $ 50 million each.
While a Sydney father and a Brisbane man came forward to collect their winnings, the third share was not claimed.
De Lott said they had limited the search for the third mysterious winner to Ipswich, just southwest of the CBD of Brisbane.
Spokesperson Lauren Cooney has urged everyone in the area to check their tickets.

& # 39; If you discover that you have one winning entry in the division, hold that ticket and call us as soon as possible so we can start the claim process, & # 39; she said.
Queensland Times reported that the mystery winner had purchased his ticket from a newsXpress newspaper store in Brassal, Ipswich.
The lucky local was not registered so officials have no way of contacting them, but store owner Dave Bassi said he believed the cardholder was an older customer who had not paid attention to the news.
& # 39; It may be someone who comes in once a week and is a regular customer & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; Hopefully they come by this week. It may even be someone who did it for the first time and who doesn't know the game.
The Sydney father, who won part of the prize, woke up last Friday morning to discover the life-changing news.
He said he was still trying to get his head around the fact that he had woken up a multi-millionaire.
& # 39; I am speechless. How would anyone feel? I don't even think this is real at the moment.
& # 39; My God. I just told my wife. She prepared the children for school and she doesn't believe me. I only bought my ticket at the last minute when I was at work yesterday, because everyone bought it.
& # 39; I think maybe I should take a day off to calm down and think about how I will use this prize. I could never concentrate. & # 39;

The Brisbane man said he didn't sleep after he found out he had won a third of the jackpot.
When asked how he wanted to enjoy his incredible $ 50 million prize, the man was overwhelmed by emotion.
& # 39; Well I would like to build a house, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I would really like to take some free time to spend some quality time with my family and some traveling.
& # 39; I have to wait for the rest.
& # 39; I have to let the news sink in. & # 39;
In addition to the three big winners, there were also eighteen division-two winners, each of whom scored nearly $ 126,000.
Mrs. Cooney revealed that the division is one victory the second this year for Ipswich after a local mother scored $ 40 million in Oz Lotto in June.
The winning numbers were 26, 4, 17, 5, 18, 8, 31 and the Powerball was 9.
The $ 100 million prize pool after no winners had claimed the first division prize in the previous draw.
Lottery officials said about half of all adult Australians participated in the Powerball draw, overshadowing the previous record price of $ 107.6 million written off in January.
