Australians Bought Thousands of Tickets for $2.3 Billion US Powerball - The Biggest Lottery Jackpot in History

SYDNEY, January 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Australian wins 3rdprize // Man from El Salvador wins 2nd prize // Sales in Australia "through the roof"

The stories are pouring in. The California state lottery was the first to tweet they had a winner and Tennessee and Florida soon followed. These three players now share the biggest Powerball prize ever - a grand jackpot of nearly $2.3 billion (1.6 billion USD).

1.5 billion tickets were sold for the $2.3 billion draw and total prize money besides the jackpot was $273,869,273 USD.

Australians were trying everything to get their hands on tickets. Some asked friends in the US to secure their tickets. theLotter.com, a messenger service which allows people to get official lottery tickets, saw its site traffic surge over the past week. Thousands upon thousands of Australians found their way to the website, requesting the site's couriers to get them their official Powerball tickets in the US.

Pensioner from El Salvador Wins 2nd Prize in the Powerball through theLotter

73-year-old grandfather H. from El Salvador can barely survive on his old age pension, but when he saw there was $1.6 billion jackpot in the US he remembered his father used to say "If you want to win the lottery, all you need to do is buy a ticket". So he signed up with theLotter on Monday, bought a 3-line Powerball ticket and got a confirmation email.

Thursday morning after the momentous draw, H. received a phone call from theLotter with the news he can now go and collect $1 million in Florida. He'd only just said to his wife that he'd woken up that morning with a strange premonition involving travel to America. After scooping up this fortune, H. can take his entire family along on that trip he dreamt about!

Last Saturday's third prize in the Powerball was also won by a theLotter player, from Australia. Both these big winners follow in the footsteps of theLotter's Iraqi winner of the $6.4 million Oregon Megabucks whose story went viral in December. All in all, theLotter has helped its customers win a massive $43 million so far without charging any commission.

Australians can legally get lottery tickets in the United States - and now they know how...
