Billed as the biggest jackpot in the history of lotteries, Wednesday night's Powerball saw an unbelievable $1.5 billion go up for grabs, with millions of people entering to win the most life-changing amount ever given away.
As you would expect, GiantLottos.com was right in the thick of the action, with players logging on to buy Powerball tickets before the Wednesday evening deadline, in the hopes of sharing in the once-in-a-lifetime jackpot.
And now that the results are in, it seems that our players' luck is in too - as one of our members is the holder of a winning $50,000 Powerball ticket!
That's right - one very lucky GiantLottos.com player from Australia is now a whole $50,000 richer, thanks to their decision to play in Wednesday's headline-making Powerball draw.
Not only that, by walking off with a $50,000 payout from one single ticket, our Aussie winner has entered the record books themselves by becoming the biggest ever winner from an online ticket agent!
If that doesn't make GiantLottos.com one of the luckiest places to play, we don't know what does!
So what do we know about our fantastic $50,000 winner?
His $50,000 jackpot payout came as a stroke of beginner's luck - thanks to matching four numbers and the Powerball on their very first GiantLottos.com purchase!
Even more unbelievable is that our lucky Aussie purchased only eight Powerball tickets, and won a massive $50,000 in return - a hugely lucrative return on investment!
Add to that the smaller wins that other GiantLottos.com winners took away and you'll agree - 2016 has been a fabulous year so far for online lotto players!
We still can't get over the fact that the Powerball saw a colossal $1.5 billion go up for grabs - a result of 19 consecutive rollovers that started on 4 November and snowballed to a record-breaking $1,586 billion.
If you like statistics, you'll love what the numbers on this once-in-a-lifetime jackpot draw look like:
If you're kicking yourself for missing out this time, don't be discouraged - the US Powerball takes place every Wednesday and every Saturday evening.
And with $50 million to play for at the very next draw, there's every reason to buy yourself a ticket or two (or eight) from GiantLottos.com and get your entries in.
