A Brisbane family's lives have likely changed forever after
winning the $40 million Powerball jackpot.
A father in his 30s, who wants to remain anonymous, was the
sole winner of the massive prize drawn last night.
"That's cool," the gobsmacked winner said when told of his
windfall over the phone.
"We'll take our time and do the right thing with this prize
"We're going to look after everyone that's close to us."
The man also won other divisional prizes, taking his actual
winnings total to $40,429,365.80.
His winning numbers were 36, 38, 21, 39, 29 and 22. The
Powerball was 12.
It's the second time a sole winner from Queensland has
claimed the Powerball jackpot.
In February, an Innisfail woman won $6 million.
