The Powerball weekend draw is set to take place this Saturday with a huge $136 million top prize up for grabs - but who could forget just a few short weeks ago, when the jackpot reached record-breaking heights of over $1 billion!
It made news headlines all over the world, and it's a draw we won't be forgetting in a hurry - thanks to one lucky GiantLottos.com player walking off with a fantastic $50,000 payout!
What makes the win an even more memorable one for us isn't simply that one of our players shared in such a historic jackpot! Not bad for someone who'd never played online before!
First-time GiantLottos.com player strikes it rich
When Tom first heard about the frenzy surrounding the upcoming Powerball draw, he never for a moment considered entering, much less winning - but the fact that the news had travelled all the way from the USA to his native Australia was enough to give him pause and make him think twice about playing. From there, a gentle nudge from his wife was all he needed to go online and purchase his first ever GiantLottos.com tickets - with miraculous results!
"It's true", says Tom, "you can be a first-time winner… with GiantLottos.com! With friends and family in the USA and all the Australian media coverage leading up to the draw on 13 January, my wife had a vision that we should try to play. Then, a day later, she was driving home and heard the GiantLottos ad on the local radio, so she prompted me again and again. The next day I duly logged on to figure out how to open an account. Never having played any form of lotto online, I was naturally sceptical and cautious. I found the account opening procedures very easy to follow and I was able to create my tickets much quicker than I expected.
"To our bewilderment and immense joy… we became first-time winners - a wonderful gift! Aside from the winnings, what really impressed me was the ease of dealing with the GiantLottos call centre to start the process and confirm that I had a winning ticket. Despite the huge volumes related to the US Powerball event, I was able to get through on my first call and I was provided with clear instructions. Later that day I was contacted by Rob to congratulate us and advise on the next steps. I was even more impressed to receive the funds in my account only a few days later, supported by a clear statement.
"I just wanted to say thank you and compliment the GiantLottos team for all their personal help with my experience. Needless to say, I will continue to follow the US Powerball, as lightning can strike twice!"
A huge congratulations to you and your family Tom - we're so glad that you found the GiantLottos.com experience to be a positive one. And we hope you enjoy spending every cent of your winnings - you deserve it!
