The draw comes just weeks after a group of 20 fellow miners took home $53.3 million in the country’s biggest Powerball jackpot to date.
October’s $160 million mega Powerball was won by just three lucky winners, each making themselves around $53 richer.
The union said a rainbow had formed over the mine site just before the life-changing victory, with one joking that it was their ‘pot of gold’.
Kalgoorlie-Boulder miners in Western Australia each spent $100 in the $160 million Powerball draw in a ‘spontaneous’ decision to join as a union for the first time.
Details about who won Thursday night’s $50 million mega Powerball are scant, however the ticket was purchased either in the ACT or in NSW.
The group originally thought they had won the division two prize before the ticket holder exclaimed that they were, in fact, the division one winners.
Union members said they planned to spend their earnings on early retirement, vacations and spoiling their families.
The syndicate joined a western Sydney father and a Victorian grandfather as the three-tier prize winners in the $160 million Powerball draw.
Sydney’s father said he almost missed out on being in the raffle and had to run for a ticket at the last minute.
This is unbelievable,’ he told Lotto officials upon learning that he had won.
