The winning numbers for Thursday’s draw were 13, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21 and 29 and the Powerball was 18.
Lottery officials are still waiting for the winner to come forward and claim their life-changing prize money.

‘If you win the jackpot, you’ll want to know immediately,’ spokesperson Matt Hart said previously.
‘By registering your entry, we’ll be able to reach out to you straight after the draw to confirm the life-changing news.’
The winner is urged to contact officials as soon as possible as it usually takes up to two weeks for the cash prize to be sent to them.
Division One winners have the option of receiving the money via cheque or an electronic funds transfer.
The win comes a month after an Echuca woman, in Victoria, took home $40million after winning the Powerball on February 2.
The winning player confessed she was completely shocked by her new multi-millionaire status.
‘Oh my god! Oh my god! I can’t believe it. I thought it was a scam!’ she exclaimed.
‘This just doesn’t feel real. How do I know if this is real?!
‘I’m so nervous, I feel really bizarre. My whole body has gone numb!
‘My husband and I couldn’t sleep at all last night. We were pacing back and forth.’
She said she planned to quit her job and spend more time with her family.
‘This is really going to take some time to sink in. It won’t feel real until the money is in my bank account,’ she said.
‘My husband and I have these goals in place and were wondering how we were going to achieve them, but now we don’t have to worry anymore!
‘I can’t believe this is happening!’
