A Canberra dad has won the $60 million Powerball jackpot.
The ACT resident had the only division one winning entry in Powerball 1363, drawn Thursday night.
The father told The Lott he would retire immediately to spend more time with his young family.
When an official from The Lott rang to confirm he had won, the dad picked up the phone on the first ring.
"Are you serious?" the lucky dad said.
"I'm laughing. I'm lost for words. I'm pacing around. I can't believe it. I'm going to have a heart attack.
"You know what? I had a feeling it was The Lott calling me, I thought, 'They're going to call me at 8.30pm tonight'. Wow, wow, wow."
The winner said he played the same numbers all the time - inspired by his family.
"I'm going to retire. I have children and a very large family. They're going to be looked after. I can't believe it. Oh my god.
"It's been a tough year. This is life-changing.
"I'm going to pay off some bills and enjoy living debt-free. I'm going to take a long-overdue holiday with my family. I can't believe it. I'm shaking."
