Three Australians have claimed a share of the $160 million Powerball prize, the largest lottery jackpot in Australian history, with one winner yet to claim his prize.

The three division one winners will each take home just over $53 million, bringing the total prize money won by Australians this year to $614 million.

The three state winners are Victoria, New South Wales and Washington.

The hunt is on for a mystery ticket holder in New South Wales who bought an unregistered ticket at a Penrith outlet in Sydney’s west.

Lottery officials must wait for the multi-millionaire to check their ticket and learn the life-changing news themselves.

“We can’t wait for them to discover this incredible news,” said Lott spokesman James Eddy.

A worker from Clyde cried tears of joy when lottery officials called to tell him he was the only winner in Victoria.

“Oh my God, oh my God. I can’t believe it!” – he shouted into the phone.

“Holy crap! Far away! I have completely lost the gift of language.

“I never thought I would get a call. It changed my life!”

A Clyde man said he plans to retire immediately and buy his grandson a dog for Christmas and quit his job immediately.

“I finished the job! I’m getting out of here, mate. Pension is calling,” he said.

“It’s absolutely stunning.”

The third winner is from Western Australia, although little is known about their identity.
